An awesome resource for webmasters and SEO’s operating in the UK from Eduard Blacquière..."Hitwise analyzed the top 1,500 terms searched for in the 12 weeks ending 3rd January 2009 (the last quarter of 2008) across the top 5 UK search engines, being,, Yahoo, Live Search ans Ask...Interesting is that has a larger ‘tail’ than average with people searching for specific terms. More interesting is that Ask UK has a tail 4 times larger."

"Live Search has gained market share and is popular for technical search queries" - What do they mean by "technical"?

@MindyI’m not sure what Hitwise means with the ’technical’ catagory. Their approach is as outlined in my summary, which they must have used for the technical subject category as well:"Hitwise pulled out all the non-branded terms and attached a subject area to them. For example, ‘football’ was labelled as sport, ‘tv guide’ as TV, ‘oasis’ as music and so on."
