Here’s something a little different. I found some of this information pretty intriguing: I’m not quite sure how accurate Google Trends is at this time, but check out some of the data it has yielded. Note that this tool is used to show the most popularly searched terms from the beginning of 2004 to now.
Like many other curiosity seekers, I checked Google Trends for the most commonly searched titillating key words that we use out there: “sex”, “money”, “personal finance” and “business” to see where in the world these key terms are HOT.
Here’s what you’ll find. Some funky findings: the Philippines overwhelmingly tops the interest in keyword searches for “love” (no surprise that the “ILOVEYOU” computer virus stemmed from there) , while New Zealand cares about their “sheep”, and weirdly, Trinidad and Tobago is REALLY concerned about “global warming” AND “makeup.” I don’t quite know what to make of some of this, actually. How much could these results be in question?
Here are some more visuals:
and similarly for
Now as far as money, personal finance and business goes, the same group of locations seem to rank repeatedly as the top ranked locations for these Google search terms. Not much divergence there. But despite all that info, my readership statistics show that the overwhelming majority of my audience is still from the United States. So I’m wondering how to reconcile such data. Then again, if you searched for “money blog” or “finance blog”, the results are different but may be closer to what I had expected (though still not quite).
Yet a few more things to make me scratch my head.
