MOUNTAIN VIEW (RUSHPRNEWS)Aug 14, 2008 - -With Google Trends, you can compare the world’s interest in your favorite topics. Enter up to five topics and see how often they’ve been searched on Google over time. Google Trends also shows how frequently your topics have appeared in Google News stories, and in which geographic regions people have searched for them most.

About Hot Trends

With Hot Trends, you can see a snapshot of what’s on the public’s collective mind by viewing the fastest-rising searches for different points of time. You can see a list of today’s top 100 fastest-rising search queries in the U.S. You can also select a recent date in history to see what the top rising searches were and what the search activity looked like over the course of that day. We update Hot Trends hourly.

How does Google Trends work?

Google Trends analyzes a portion of Google web searches to compute how many searches have been done for the terms you enter, relative to the total number of searches done on Google over time. We then show you a graph with the results – our Search Volume Index graph.

Located beneath the Search Volume Index graph is our News reference volume graph. This graph shows you the number of times your topic appeared in Google News stories. When Google Trends detects a spike in the volume of news stories for a particular search term, it labels the graph and displays the headline of an automatically selected Google News story written near the time of that spike. Currently, only English-language headlines are displayed, but we hope to support non-English headlines in the future.


Below the search and news volume graphs, Trends displays the top regions, cities, and languages in which people searched for the first search term you entered.

How accurate and up-to-date is the information provided by Google Trends?

Google Trends is a Google Labs product, which means it’s still in its early stages of development. The data Trends produces may contain inaccuracies for a number of reasons, including data-sampling issues and a variety of approximations that are used to compute results. We hope you find this service interesting and entertaining, but you probably wouldn’t want to write your Ph.D. dissertation based on the information provided by Trends.

The information provided by Trends is now updated daily, and Hot Trends is updated hourly.

When will Google Trends be available for my country or language?

Currently, Google Trends is only available in English and in Chinese. Hot Trends is only available in English. We hope to roll out Google Trends in other regions and languages in the future.

How does Hot Trends work?

Hot Trends reflects what people are searching for on Google today. Rather than showing the most popular searches overall, which would always be generic terms like ‘weather,’ Hot Trends highlights searches that experience sudden surges in popularity, and updates that information hourly. Our algorithm analyzes millions of web searches performed on Google and displays those searches that deviate the most from their historic traffic pattern. The algorithm also filters out spam and removes inappropriate material. For each search, Hot Trends shows related searches and a search volume graph. The page also displays news, blog posts, and web results to give context about why a search may be appearing on the Hot Trends list. You can also choose a date in the past to see what the top Hot Trends were for that date by clicking change date.

Is the list of Hot Trends comprehensive?

No. We know there may be numerous queries that experience sudden surges in popularity, but Hot Trends only highlights the top 100 such queries. You can view all 100 searches by clicking More Hot Trends; this list is updated throughout the day. You can also get this list through a feed. To do so, click Site Feed after you’ve clicked More Hot Trends, and follow the instructions.

How many terms can I compare? And what other functionality is available?

You can compare up to five terms by separating each one with a comma. For example, to compare ‘boots’ and ‘sneakers,’ simply enter boots, sneakers and click Search Trends.

To see how many searches contained either term, list them and separate with a vertical bar ( | ):

boots | sneakers

To see how many searches were done for either ‘snow boots’ or ‘sneakers,’ use parentheses around the multi-word term: (snow boots) | sneakers.

You can also exclude terms from your search by using the minus sign. For instance, to see how many searches contained the term ‘boots’ but not ‘hiking,’ enter boots-hiking.

To restrict your results to only those searches that contain your terms in the specific order you’ve entered them, you can put your terms in quotation marks: “snow boots”. (By default, Google Trends will show you all searches that contain the terms you entered in any order.)

Note that when you use any of these advanced features – quotation marks, minus signs, or vertical bars – Trends will only display the Search Volume Index graph. The news portion doesn’t support advanced functionality at this time.
