What Happened to Spacky.com?

One valuable search tool I often used was spacky.com. However in the past several weeks I have been unable to access spacky. Is it because Google AdWords shoved them out of the market?

I enjoyed using spacky.com. But now I'm wondering what happened to them. They never advertised. I found out about them through word of mouth. I liked the idea of venturing into territories other than Google, though I must admit I accessed Google a lot too.

But now I'm left with only Google AdWords as my keyword tool. I should ask myself why I would even need another tool for locating words that would sell my writing, but I don't. And in this age of SEO (search engine optimization), knowing which words to use helps tremendously.

Another place I should visit frequently, but I forget to visit is Google Trends. If you want to know what's HOT and be assured that what you write will be noticed, check out Google Trends. Maybe it's because I don't want to force myself to write about things just because they're popular, and maybe it's because I don't want to compete with thousands of other writers who want to write about something only because it's HOT, but I must admit, I'd really like more people to read what I write, so I'm trying to pay attention to what works and what doesn't.

Google AdWords works. Sadly,  spacky doesn't anymore.

R.I.P., Spacky.

  1. Thanks Theresa for noticing. I've been wondering the same thing myself. I thought Spacky was a great tool as an addition to Google, but now I'm back there again. I try Wordtracker from time to time too. If Microsoft were smart, they'd add a keyword tool to Bing!

  2. Glad its not just me that noticed the passing of Spacky.
    I thought it was a super tool - I dont know of any other that has all 3 search engines results together on 1 page.

    RIP

  3. I had just learned about Spacky, and found it very helpful. I'm glad I saved my results before the site went down. We need more tools like Spacky.

  5. YESS!!!! I found people who loved Spacky as much as me!! I used this tool frequently and have only found one legit replacement called Market Samurai. But it costs money to use :(

    If anyone can provide me with a comparable free alternative to spacky I would be appreciative.
