Google Trends & Tips

In the most recent “Google Friends Newsletter” I was reminded of a very cool tool they launched earlier this month which I inadvertantly forgot to blog about. They wrote:

“Google Trends enables you to compare the world’s interest in your favorite topics. You can enter up to five topics and see how often they’ve been searched for on Google over time. Google Trends also displays how frequently your topics have appeared in Google News stories, and which geographic regions have searched for them most often.”

In testing it out one can find some very interesting information. Basically it graphically compares search frequency vs news for a given phrases. You can check it out at http://www.google.com/trends.

Also in their newsletter they pointed out a great blog post by Google staff doctor Dr. Taraneh Razavi, M.D. Dr. Razavi wrote about RSI (repetitive stress injury). For those of us who spend WAY too many hours punching away at our keyboards there are some good tips and links to useful resources to help keep us healthy into the future. You can read the blog post here.
