Can you buy search data from google, yahoo or msn?

Is it possible to get historic search data from google, yahoo or msn?  If so, how?

For a specific search term, I would like to know the number of daily searches historically?

Is there anyway to get the data off trends for search terms that dont have many hits?
Search terms that only have a few hundred hits per month are very hard to judge.  This month you might see 300 hits, next month 43.  They are so sporatic that Google doesn't publish data on them.  You could try to evaluate keyword overlap though to come up with a good guesstimate.  For instance:

home cooked meals - monthly average of 2500 searches
home made meals - no data
home made foods - avg. 3500 searches

You should be able to inference that 'home made meals' is seeing similar traffic compared to the others, but google does try to pigeon hole search terms and doesn't give details on long-tail keyword phrases thus no real data.  It's possible to experiment with a keyword phrase and have it perform better than others if your page is targetted to those keywords.
