Many people use Google Trends already, but did you know Google also has Hot Trends? I like to use regular Trends as a supplement to the free overture keyword tool but if you’re looking to go an extra step in your research, you can head over to Hot Trends and see what people are searching for every few hours. That’s how often Hot Trends are updated.
If you click one of the hot trends (which you can sort by date), you can see the popularity of searches per hour as well as stories about the keyword. For example, today’s hottest trend is “spanx undergarments”. I had no idea what this was until I clicked it and did a more thorough search.
Why Use Google Hot Trends.
Since these trends are hourly and any news story will sway the search results, you don’t always find pertinant information but this is yet another great way to see what is becoming popular today. Add this as another research tool because the key to starting a successful web site is to research every corner of the niche. Don’t leave any rocks unturned.
