Overall Satisfaction with Google Trends

Google Trends is a free tool from Google that allows users to view trends in search queries over time. I’ve used it in my search marketing agency to forecast seasonal fluctuations in search traffic and compare search queries against one another.
  • Tracking relative search volume over time.
  • Comparing volume for multiple search queries.
  • Forecasting future search volume.
  • Not a robust keyword tool.
  • Data is general, not specific.
  • Would like to see a professional version beyond the free features.
  • Helped improve my quality of work.
  • Helped predict search queries before they became popular.
I haven’t used any tools quite like Google Trends.
Well suited for casual research for search volume over time. Not a robust or comprehensive tool by any means. Won’t help you rank for specific queries. I’ve always used Google Trends to fill in pieces of the puzzle I may have been missing and to get inside the heads of search engine users.
