Question ID: 321741

I am doing a project whereby I need to come up with the 100,000 most
commonly searched for terms online.  When I say searched for, I am
referring to the word, words or phrases that are typed in to a search
engine and searched for each day.

Currently, I use Overtures search term suggestion tool to give me
a good idea for how popular a particular search term is.  However, I
don?t have a base as to words to use to try and come with a top
100,000 list.  I was going to go through the English dictionary and
try each word to see searches for a respective word, and searches for
others phrases with that word in it.  However, that would be very time
consuming, and I think there has to be some other way to get this

Do you have any idea where I could find the top 100,000 searched for
terms?  My idea of using the Overture tool and dictionary may be a
good starting point, but is there something besides the dictionary
that would give me a complete list of popular words (used online) that
I could then put through the Overture tool?

Thanks for your time.

I've identified 2 sources -- one at $49 and one at $500.  Would you be
interested in either of these?

I would be interested in the source.  $50 and $500 is a big
difference, if the information is similar, I would prefer the $50
source, if the more expensive information was exactly what I am
looking for, I would fork up the $500.

As for "Adult and Porn" related searches, I would not need this
information for my project.  So I may need to move my 100,000 to
200,000 if I'm going to have to eliminate half due to "Adult and Porn"
related searches.

Hello -

Thank you for your question.  If you have any questions, please don't
hesitate to ask beforehand if you choose to rate this answer.

I have since discovered a browser-viewable free list at this site:

Word Discover

You can subscribe to the service at $41/year (at and get download
access to the lists in MS Access format.  Here are some of their
product offerings:

>>Top 100,000 Three Word Keywords
>>Top 100,000 Two Word Keywords
>>Top 100,000 One Word Keywords
>>Keyword Advertising Database 2003
>>Search Engine Optimization Database

Here are the original two sources I mentioned:

Keyword stats ($49.95 for 100,000 words; $89.95 for 200,000)
"Millions of keywords get searched each day. For many of these search
terms, there is NO market. Meaning there is a demand yet there are NO
suppliers. With this keyword database, you can tap into these markets.
Search through the database and find the number of searches for each
term. If you have never heard of the term, yet it's been searched many
times, this may be an undiscovered market! Out of 100,000/200,000
unique search terms, that's quite a ratio.  These terms come in an
Access Database of Top 100,000/200,000 keywords collected from October
2002 to the present, and extracted from 36 million searches."

Wordtracker ($500 for 100,000 words)
They also have top 20,000 and top 500,000.

Search strategy:
"top 50000..500000 keywords"

I reconmend that you use Google Zeitgeist:

And for each top search item, you will use Overture's inventory tool
to get more phrases out of it. that should give you a fairly large
amount of top searches.
