    Hi -

    In response to firstmark's question regarding top searched keywords I do have some infomration to pass on. The link below is a directory to all our category managers monthly newsletter. When you open up the directory, select an eBay.ca category you will find on the right side the top search terms for that specific category. It is not a comprehensive list but a good list to start with. I hope this helps.

    Do Canadians really spell it "collectables" rather than "collectibles" ???

    Americans spell it collectables too very often.
    Its a very common typo.

    Is there any possibility to get access to this type of data for ebay.com as a whole and not just its canadian parts?

    I know all about colour, jewellery, etc as I speak the Queen's english too.

    But collectable?

    Maybe it's because I never really used that word until the Internet came along that I've picked up bad spelling habits from the gringos?

    But all the dictionary's I've checked state that it's just a variant spelling of collectible. THey were all US dictionaries, of course.

    Anyone got an Oxford english dictionary handy?

    Intersting stats courtesy of Altavista:

    .ca .uk .au .nz
    +domain:xx +collectible 3,419 11064 2630 1273
    +domain:xx +collectable 3,304 31851 5674 948

    More webpages (just) in the .ca domain mention "collectible" than "collectable". :^)
