Overture Keyword Selector Tool is Outdated (since January 2007)

overture keyword selector toolThe Overture Keyword Selector Tool, located at http://inventory.overture.com. Hasn't been returning updated results for quite a while now.

Keyword Discovery and Wordtracker provides more detailed reports if you subscribe to their services.

UPDATE: You can generate keywords using SEO Book's Keyword List Generator, and you can clean up your keyword lists using the Keyword List Cleaner
