Google Trends

With Google Trends, users can compare the world’s interest in selected topics.

 

Users can enter up to five topics and see how often they’ve been searched on Google over time.

 

Google Trends also shows...

- how frequently the topics have appeared in Google News stories, and

- the geographic regions in which people have searched for them the most.

 

Google hope users find this service interesting and entertaining, but those in the world of education probably wouldn’t want to write a Ph.D. dissertation based on the information provided by Trends.

 

NOTE: The information provided by Trends is updated daily, and Hot Searches (http://www.google.com/trends/hottrends) is updated hourly.
