Let Google Trends tell you what is trending in the world…
When you talk about The Internet many people don’t see any difference between Google and the The Internet. With 68% of the worldwide search traffic going through Google they have a pretty accurate view of what the general population of the internet is searching for.
This information is all collected and anonymously tracked. Wouldn’t it be interesting if you could look at what the world is searching for?
Bring on “Google Trends”
Take a look at “Google Trends” – a website that lets you look at what people are searching for, a yearly report on the most searched for information on the web and you can even compare search terms to see if there is a trend.
This can lead to some interesting search comparisons – for example you could compare the number of searches for the “ice bucket challenge” and “als”.
If you are like me and find this kind of thing fascinating then be warned at how much time you might spend looking through this site.
