Google Hot Trends Web Site...Get More Blog Traffic by Studying It
by Paula Neal Mooney
Google Hot Trends Lab web site is alive!
I just threw my hands in the air when I read on Problogger.net about a new site named Google Trends Lab that gives up-to-date, current information about the hot searches people are typing into Google.
Google Trends Lab is a blogger's dream, especially for those looking to bring up their search-engine traffic.
For example, in the current #2 search position is Julianne Hough.
Use Google Suggest and Trend Labs Combined
A quick check of Google Suggest Labs lets me know that folks are hot and heavy for "Julianne Hough Mormon" info, as well as "Julianne Hough engaged" queries.
(I'd never heard of her, but turns out Julianne Hough is not engaged anymore, and the Mormon wedding Julianne Hough planned was called off.)
Google Trends Labs Features
What's even cooler about Google Trends lab is that they provide a neat graph as pictured here showing how the search term is peaking during the day, related searches, news articles and blog posts related to the hot search term.
Here's hoping this will bring plenty more search-engine traffic to our blogs!
