A trend tool from Google - Google insight for search
Google Insight for Search ad randomly popped up on top of my gmail inbox. In a quest of searching for a good post for Teckitech, I clicked on it and found it quite amazing and much similar to Wolfram Alpha. A result from Google Insight for Search usually contains:
- a graph with the search volume, indicating interest over time for your terms, plotted on a scale from 0 to 100; the totals are indicated next to bars by the search terms (read more about how we scale and normalize the data)
- a breakdown of how the categories are classified
- lists of the top searches and top rising searches
- a world heat map graphically displaying the search volume index with defined regions, cities, and metros
It is also said to ‘analyzes a portion of worldwide Google web searches from all Google domains to compute how many searches have been done for the terms you’ve entered, relative to the total number of searches done on Google over time. You can choose to see data for select Google properties, including Web search, Image search, Product search, and News search (certain properties aren’t currently available in all countries/territories).’ And the data seems to be updated once a day with the previous day’s information. However, rarely “there may be slightly longer delays between updates”. The data from Google Insight for Search.
