I tried out this relatively new service for the first time today. My first impression – I like it! Like a lot of the other Google services I am not sure how useful this will be. This service basically lets users spot trends acroos the world on any “keyword” and returns a search volume vs time graph. It also returns a news reference volume vs time graph. You can also do a comparison between two keywords. The drawbacks is that you can’t search for something specific, it works only for very generic keywords. I guess it is still in the research phase therefore the limitation. “Yahoo” is more popular than “Google”…hmm!
