For more than six years, we have compiled a regular list of popular searches called the Google Zeitgeist.
This has been our way to highlight the sorts of queries people type
into the Google search box every day. More recently, we unveiled Google Trends
to show the popularity of search terms in relation to each other
overtime, and how different cities or regions may care (or not) about
And today we’re introducing a new toy we are calling Hot Trends.
It’s a new feature of Google Trends for sharing the the hottest current
searches with you in very close to real time. What’s on our collective
mind as we search for information? What’s interesting to people right
now? Hot Trends will tell you. At a glance, you’ll see the huge variety
of topics capturing our attention, from current events to daily
crossword puzzle clues to the latest celebrity gossip. Hot Trends is
updated throughout the day, so check back often.
