Are you looking for a trending blog topic? Or perhaps you want to know the top Google searches across particular countries or regions. If this sounds familiar, then a great tool that we use here at the GUHQ is Google Trends.
Google Trends is a Google-run website that analyses the top Google search topics and displays the results in comparable graphs.
If you want to know whether a particular topic is currently trending, or how often it has been searched for, you can use the search bar at the top of the page. You can then select the area, the time range, the category and the web search. There is also the option to add a comparison to see which topic has been searched for more regularly.
If you are currently planning your blog posts, take a look at Google Trends for any topics that you have in mind. Then try to match the publishing date to any spikes in the popularity of that particular search topic.
