I just found search engine watch's "2005 in Review: The Year's Top Search Terms" which throws some light on the dogpile and other SE skews. The most popular search terms vary quite a bit. Here's Google:
7. Sky News
8. World of Warcraft
9. Green Day
10. Leonardo da Vinci
I love "10. Leonardo da Vinci", makes you think there's hope for the world.
1. Music Lyrics
2. Paris Hilton
7. Games Cheat
10. Top 100 Baby Names
A real pile of dog **** And not one term in common with Google! And I just paid my yearly due to WT Do KD have a top ten list? Anyone know of top 1000 lists with figures (dream on...)

Google don't actually give the top 10 searches - just naff lists like gainers, news and froogle. Thanks for nothing, again, Google.
I apologise WordTracker, I guess the metacrawler/dogpile results are still the best we can get. (Where's the "eat crow" emoticon ).

As usual KD don't specify where they get their keywords from
I'm guessing these are the top five KD words from their mash of different (unspecified) sources? Do KD give away a top 100 for free?
Interesting that Dogpile doesn't have myspace in the top 10 -- I've seen it suggested that dogpile users tend to baby boomers and not teenagers. So if you're aiming at the teenage market perhaps KD would be better than WT?
Is Paris Hilton an adult based term ?

WT figures -- number of searches over 3 months.
1 google 177363
2 myspace 165746
5 ebay 140151
6 yahoo 133951
7 play games 123943
10 yahoo.com 85342
17 music lyrics 61449
This is based on [377,953,650] searches, so some people do use dogpile/mc :-)
KD figures are number of searches over 12 months in their database:
google 29,952,402 0.17% (% of total volume of searches)
myspace 5,453,020 0.16%
yahoo 31,488,823 0.13%
These KD figures look all wrong to me. How does the number of searches relate to the volume and order of appearance? The volume % of KD matches very well with WT figures! Is there a bug in KD 'number of searches' figures?

Hi the above example seems to be taken from our Industry terms database.
The industry terms database is basically a means to match search terms to a specific industry category. The way we do this is as follows:
1. We take the category tree/structure from DMOZ
2. we identify all the sites indexed within each category
3. using our http://ci.trellian.com/ Competitive Intelligence data, we check if any of thoe DMOZ indexed sites have received visits from search engines.
4. If they have we extract the search term that generated a visit.
5. We then place that search term into the same category where the site is indexed.
6. the volume % is the volume of traffic going to that industry category by the keywords within that category.
(Within each category the volume % for all the keywords in that category = 100%)
So instead of directory of websites, we are left with a directory of keywords based on actual traffic.
This basically provides a way to categorize keywords into specific industries based on actual traffic going to sites indexed in the DMOZ directory.
Hence the volume % figure can not be used to compare against top keyword lists as it relates to traffic not searches.
