SEO Scoop has pointed out a keyword suggestion tool that has now been set up, based around the search data infamously published by AOL a couple of weeks ago.

The tool estimates the volume of searches for different keywords on the three biggest engines, based on their market share and the number of queries contained in AOL’s data.

As some have pointed out, its results can’t be totally accurate as Google, Yahoo! and MSN can attract different user segments, but search marketers won't be complaining.

A reminder of how giving such a huge amount of customer data away was such a big blunder.
