What's Eating Jdavies?

and other marketing stories

Google Trends


Got a new online tool thats bound to help marketing people and SEO experts. From dslreports.com:

The folks at Google yesterday held a press day, and unveiled a slew of new search tools, explored in detail over at the Google Blog. Among them was Google Trends, a search tool that allows users to sort through several years of global Google search queries from around the world to "get a general idea of everything from user preferences on ice-cream flavors to the relative popularity of politicians in their respective cities or countries" . Some interesting comparisons:

Ateneo vs. La Salle (Philippines) - Who's leading in our favorite local school rivalry?
Spurs vs Pistons (Global) - Will they meet again in the 2006 NBA Finals?
Friendster vs MySpace (Global) - More popular or just, more searches?
Friendster vs MySpace (Philippines) - Compare that versus other countries, and Marketing executives are sure to choose one over the other.
Smart, Globe, Sun - Notice the difference in ranking under Tagalog vs English searches.

I'm not sure if the term "up" or "UP" counts, since it can count other searches with the the word 'up'. I'm not sure, but it might be better to use the keyword "UP Diliman". or University of the Philippines. The searches does not guarantee anything however, they are true only with respect to the keywords themselves.
