Google Trends

One of the most undervalued yet best tools for tracking trending content and topics across the Internet, Google Trends looks at the trends in Google searches around the world. Considering that most people use Google for Internet search, Trends provides a pretty accurate gauge on what is or isn’t hot right now. What makes Trends so great, though, is its visualizer, which shows you a visual display on how any particular search term has done over time. For example, looking at “Kim Kardashian butt”, we see from the visualizer that there was a huge spike in Google searches for that key phrase in November (around the time when Paper Magazine released those now-infamous pictures).
