Searching for Noah

After reading a new entry over at pc4media, I clicked through to the Overture Keyword Search Tool. For people trying to figure out good Overture keywords, it shows them, “Related searches that include your term” and
“How many times that term was searched on last month.”

Naturally I searched for “noah” and was quite surprised with the findings. (The number on the left is the number of searches for that term done in December.)
