Understanding Google Trends: Introduction

What is Google Trends? Frankly, I have no idea. I mean, I know what it is, but I’m not really sure why anyone would use it. It shows, going back a few years, how many people at any given time have searched for any particular word or phrase. It also shows how many news articles have mentioned the same phrase, and it offers gobs of information about which cities and countries search most for it. For people who love statistics for their own sake, it’s hours of meaningless information. For everyone else, it’s a meaningless bore. Personally, I’m a bit of both groups of people, and in this blog I will, for no clear reason that I can understand, analyse for your benefit certain Google Trends.

Hell, why not, right?
