Google Trends – Much More Than Keyword Research
Google extends their lead in the keyword research market by adding a new tool called Google Trends. It operates similar to the Google keyword research tool, but offers trends that goes back for years, and even overlaps news related to keyword search spikes, like Google Finance does. Many of the links they provide are to cheesy press releases, so that might present another marketing opportunity.
The tool also shows top cities, regions, and languages that queries occurred in. They also allow you to set timeframes and the market location. It also allows you to compare phrases.
The only downsides to Google Trends are that it only works for broad terms and does not give exact numbers.
