Yahoo! Overture Keyword Tool is not giving results when searched for specific keywords. This was reported in a recent thread at DigitalPoint Forum by one of its member. It is still unknown why Yahoo! Overture Keyword Tool is not active.

Even if one searches for simple keywords like ‘shoe’, the result is simply ‘no suggestions’.


There is a buzz going on in the industry that the Overture is getting closed. Some time back in January, Yahoo made the Overture offline for few days, until an updated product was released in its place. There is still no confirmation from Yahoo!, whether the updated product is ready or not. Moreover, Yahoo! stopped updating the Overture tool. The industry is waiting for a new keyword tool in place of Overture, that will show search volume data.
