  • Is part of Google labs: It serves as a testing ground for new services being developed. This is a way for Google to gain feedback on the products before releasing the final versions. Alternative to Beta Released in 2004; VERY GOOD STATISTIC ANLAYSIS AND REASONING: A. Sampling: Take samples from all the searches; scale and plot search queries relative to the total search volume; Needs enough search volume; Find my name probably B. Analyze and compare C. Control and filter by variants Variants: Trend is various across regions, languages, time and categories: normalize the search volume and rank them Time graph Normalization: devided by search volume; so that excludes factors like population density, or computer ownership, etc New York and Fuji D. Reason: Analyze trend in relation to peaks in the news category volume; News is a very good medium for trend analysis: a major medium of information; habit
  • Targets more at public: Google Hot Trends: List of 100 most searched for words or phrase; lists in the order of search volume peak; updated hourly; very interesting to see the rapid change of people’s interests Yesterday: 5 pm Brad Pitts’s tattoos; 11 pm Mayor Takes search queries deviate most from traditional search terms like weather so that it explains how the sudden surges or news affect searches Graph; web, blog and news search results Google Trend: Compare up to 5 terms by separating them with commas Graph; Drop down list to categorize; Cons: From 2004; Examples: Facebook—constant builds up search volume Turkey as No. 1 search region 2008 Presidential Election Edition: Integrate Google Map; categorize by region; Prediction: Obama as president How about Sarah Palin? Good nomination; how much weight does it add to McCain’s campaign; curious about her winking, her family Doubtful Bigger graph please!!! Insight for search: August 2008; Category, seasonality and regionality; Filter and compare by regions, categories, languages Example: hotmail vs. facebook vs. myspace How do you expect America to be ranked? Trends for website: yahoo.com.cn, baidu.com Contents About Google Trends for Websites 2. How is the data in Trends for Websites generated? Trends for Websites combines information from a variety of sources, such as aggregated Google search data, aggregated opt-in anonymous Google Analytics data, opt-in consumer panel data, and other third-party market research. The data is aggregated over millions of users, powered by computer algorithms, and doesn't contain personally identifiable information. Compare with search trends
  • a. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Doctor reports portions of patients that have similar symptoms of flu; b. Google Trend is updated daily Trend of Google Trends: a. UK recession: when everyone feels the recession and Google Trends shows it; weeks before official reports came out; b. Sociology research; problem is: We don’t want to use Google Trends as a source of our PhD paper source; c. Insight for business; GA(Google Analytics)

  • Mobile Users and PC-based internet users: 1 billion scale In 2007, nearly three times as many mobile users
  • Smartphone manufactured by HTC, a Taiwan company Features: Touch screen, camera, keyboard, audio, storage, battery Software: History: Pocket PC released in 2000 as a debut or pre show of Windows Mobile; has been updated a long time Platform on which software can run; Released in the summer of 2007; Open Handset Appliance: 34 companies from silicon chip manufacturers to software developers; Open source; Google Apps and other build-in apps: ShopSavvy: scan bar codes and compare in local stores and web stores; BreadCrumbz: like StreetView, let customers take pictures and add arrows for direction EcoRio: keep you aware of how much C02 you produce in transportation and save for other purchases
  • Revenue: Negotiating the fairest way to split those advertising revenues with service providers could be a big hurdle for Google, one analyst said. Another problem is the potential that consumers could be scared off by the prospect of listening to advertisements before being able to make phone calls . "I don't know how successful it's going to be. The model of an ad-supported wireless Web has not been successful over the past 10 years," he said, referring to municipal Wi-Fi networks that offer free Internet connections to users willing to view advertisements while they surf the Web. "The average adult who can afford a cell phone is not going to want to listen to ads. So this is mainly for teenagers, twenty-somethings, high schoolers or people who can't afford a phone,“ Trend: -Hardware: Not so different and can be easily improved: Google is less competent, iphone has multiple touch screen, longer battery life -Carrier -Price Software: Android, Mac OS, Windows Mobile operating system Google apps, Apple Store, Windows Live - Features: Robust(good quality apps), attractive, wide choice of phones Compare 3 major mobile devices Trends doesn’t necessarily reflect market share
  • What will the future of mobile phones be? Balanced share or dominant share of iPhone? (See trend; time important for marketing a product; hard to wean consumers off their products) The question is: Why does Google do this? For eyeballs ? Or for building up a media empire that is larger than the sum of Microsoft, IBM and AT&T in their heydays? Not only about search; to improve search and increase revenues from search, Google has created a search economy with its many applications, products and so on. Revenue branch: AdWords and AdSense
  • The tradition of making fun of the searchers since mid-1990s; creative and far-reached ideas Google TiSP 1. Google’s intergalactic job opening was farcical 2004 Google hooked up with NASA to announce the very real NASA Research Park a year later. Concepts like MentalPlex The MentalPlex gag in 2000 had searchers communicate their intentions telepathically. Bhaven’t search engine algorithms evolved to the point where they can almost guess where they want to go to next? Google Romance? Google Romance introduced a new contextually-based dating service No, it doesn’t exist. However, you can go to Google Base, click on Personals, and read profiles on more than 120,000 potential dates. They are mostly entries culled from the popular dating sites, but it’s a start. 4.
  • AdSense: Automatically crawls the content of your pages and delivers ads (you can choose both text or image ads) that are relevant to your audience and your site content—ads so well-matched, in fact, that your readers will actually find them useful. Boasts about Google’s strong algorithm on filtering and search relevance Adwords: advertiser base

Perhaps in the future, we can attach a little version of Google that you just plug into your brain. We’ll have to develop stylish versions, but then you’d have all of the world’s knowledge immediately available which is pretty exciting.” - Sergey Brin
