Although there is a facility to import keyword lists from other PPC programs but there’s no guarantee of the traffic levels on these keywords, as the traffic levels vary with search engines. The reason for this is that different search engines have different audiences. So for Live Search always refer to the adCenter Keyword Tool.

Returns Through Misspellings & Plurals

Interestingly, many searches are performed by people misspelling or mistyping common generics such as the word ‘lingerie’. However, the fact that these words haven’t been spelled out correctly doesn’t make them irrelevant.

You might want to make use of adCenter adLabs’ Keyword Mutation Detection tool which identifies common misspellings of everyday keywords and then cash in on misspellings too!
