Google released another great tool  today, Google Insights for Search . Whether you’re an advertising agency, a small business owner, a multinational corporation, or an academic researcher, Insights for Search can help you gauge interest in your relevant search terms. It allows you to compare search volume patterns (and trends) across specific geographic regions, categories (like finance, health, and sports), and time frames. You can read more about it at the Insight for Search help center  or get a quick overview here .How does Insights into Search work:
Google Insights for Search analyzes a portion of worldwide Google web searches from all Google domains to compute how many searches have been done for the terms you’ve entered, relative to the total number of searches done on Google over time. We then show you a graph with the results, indicating interest over time, plotted on a scale from 0 to 100; the totals are indicated next to bars by the search terms.
Read more about how we scale  and normalize  the data.On the results page, you’ll also see a list of the top searches, top rising searches , and a world heat map graphically displaying the search volume index with regions, subregions, and cities.
