    Just lately the UK Overture has been extremely unreliable, with frequent timeouts. It doesn't even work well if you login to a Yahoo Search Engine Marketing Account, and you would think they would keep it working for that.
    Anyone else experiencing problems with the OV tool?

    Same here, It looks like it has been throttled even more than it was, virtually unusable for me at the moment.

    ...Same here I'm afraid and not just for the UK results.

    As Grant says - it's getting worse! :eek:

    It's crap, someone said in reply to when I questioned the source, how could I use somewhere faster when overture is the source? well you can, find another outlet and it will be faster, I don't know why.

    I use OvertureCheck.com - Find the most searched keywords! these days, much faster, more range.

    Perhaps sedo or 123-reg bought it?

    Those links look pretty similar to me! Someone should be suing the other?

    Just tried it and it works very well. Why should that be quicker though than using the O/T tool from within Yahoo Search Engine Marketing? Very odd.

    Me neither, it appears to be totally screwed at the moment. Getting about 1 result for every 30 domains checked and it takes forever!

    Is there an alternative? I rely on the OV score a lot in decision making....

    Overture is great when it's there but honestly I haven't used it in months which explains the lack of traffic I get on new domains. Correction, I try to use it but the bugger aint moving for me. You can't even get half decent results on overturecheck.com anymore and I know it lies when it can't find anything.

    I haven't found one typo with any traffic, I guess they're all taken. lol Trust me, I searched for days using type generating tools, bulk availability checks, and bulk OVT tools. None. I guess the only way to get any is to get them dropped, eh?
