Find Yahoo Search Trends Like It's Not 1999

A freelance writing client of mine wants me to do some articles basically chasing Yahoo search trend topics. Not debating the wisdom or efficacy of this. It pays; that's all I care about. What I do need to find out is a better way to track these trends than just going to Yahoo's front page and seeing what is listed as Trending there. There are only ten topics listed there, with no indication of rising or falling activity. Try as I may, I can find no page dedicated to this on Yahoo. To complicate matters, the phrase "Trending Now" appears to be a section they have in their News that has nothing to do directly with trending search topics. All my Google-Fu ends up pointing to that. Am I missing something? Can someone toss me a link? BONUS: an iOS app that I can see all this from!

Do Yahoo or MSN offer search marketing grants to 501(c)3s?

My 501(c)3 was awarded a Google AdWords grant a couple of years ago. With the success of that program, Yahoo and MSN keep popping into conversations. Do either of them have a grant program?

Paid Search: Google or Yahoo?

Sorry for the banal question, but I have to make a decision in the next couple of weeks. We have a new website with a unique product to promote. As of 2007: Paid search. Google or Yahoo? Combination of both? What percentage for each? Does it depend on the product / website? [more inside]
