What's Eating Jdavies?

and other marketing stories

Google Trends 3


More on google trends searches. This is the Da Vinci Code vs the Church battle...

Let's see who wins:
Vatican vs Dan Brown - Who's leading in searches?
Catholic Church vs Dan Brown - Relax, the lead is pretty far. Save perhaps for this:
Opus Dei vs Dan Brown - Notice that the trendline are almost the same. In effect, both keywords ride on each other. Not exactly a bad thing for Opus Dei web placement.
Verdict? Looks like both sides got the good returns in volumes. How one translate
this interest is only a matter of marketing and PR. Could the Church translate the huge volumes
in convertions. In the same way, how many of this search volume will translate into book sales, or movie tickets. Other companies like National Geographic and Discovery have taken advantage of this curiousity about early Christianity with the launch of their Da Vinci Code-themed investigations.

Meron ako latest issue ng National Geographic. They are focusing on the Bible of Judas. The secret bibile week which started last Holy Week must have been an offshoot of the Dan Brown books and renewed interest in religoius history.

by the way, clicking on the links above does not get the charts up. so you need to replace the wrongly-translated "vs" by the browser into a comma to get the desird charts. o baka sa firefox lang ito ayaw gumana?
