Google Trends shows what people are searching for

Google Zeitgeist is a monthly report on the top searches in many categories, as well as overall, top gainers, and more.  Unfortunately, while interesting, the Zeitgeist offered little in terms of comparable information or long term use.  Today Google unveiled Google Trends, a searchable, graphable, tool that allows you to delve into keyword history, comparable search terms, and more.  You can see which geographic areas topped the charts in the search, which languages, and which related stories might have led to the peaks and valleys (similar to Google Finance), via an integrated news snapshot.  See the picture for Red Sox vs. Yankees 2005 summary.
