Since I work for a funeral home I searched the term "funeral home" in Google Trends. I found some good information like people from certain states that are searching the term the most. I also found out the most popular individual funeral homes that people are searching so Google Trends can show me my competition. With keyword research, you could also check your competitors websites that are higher on the Google search than you and see what words they use and try to use some of their words with your own website to move higher on the search list.

Google Trends provided useful and relevant information for my search term "physical fitness". I found that Ohio is in the middle ranking by state for searches with that term. It also showed a spike in people searching for that term at January 1, which makes sense with people making new years resolutions. It also showed popular topics such as activity trackers and calorie counters.

Glad you found this information. Physical fitness is a broad keyword so you also want to keep narrowing this down to find your own unique place in this category.

I find Google Trends to very interesting and useful in terms of researching my market.

I feel this information will be very useful in better understanding my market and competition. Through properly interpreting this information one can make educated business decisions to adjust for the past and plan for the future.

I received great info from Google trends word searching. I learned that the most frequently searched keyword in the beauty and fitness category(comparing the four words: Fitness, physical health, body building, and healthy eating) in the United States over the past 12 months, is Fitness. Additionally, the charts showed a significant increase over time from November 2018-February 2019(having the highest recorded number) in the search trend, which seems legitimate concerning the onset and bringing in of the new year; people make new years resolutions, set goals, and a significant amount of these are typically health and fitness oriented.

I think Google Trends is a great and helpful thing. By searching the word “sneaker I was able to see where it was searched the most. I was also able to see which specific sneakers were being searched the most. This can be very helpful due to the fact that you’re a few words away from uncovering what people are specifically searching.

Google Trends was very informative. The two topics I chose to compare were cosmetology and hair extensions. Those two topics are being googled all across the world. The most common search for hair extension are the new mirco links that people are wearing now. For cosmetology the most popular searches has been for local beauty schools and license renewal. Which makes a lot of since because on every odd year you have to renew your cosmetology license.

Google trends showed me what's REALLY going on in the LGBT community. Apparently, transgender is a "trend" in this day and age. It is a label that is being misused and overplayed by Gengeration Z. Google trends opened my eyes to the flawed and following members of this upcoming society.
Hey Jake, great post. Right, I can't believe that transgender is being so overplayed by Generation Z. Back in my day, and I'm sure probably yours too, people did not ask questions why Aunt Jo had a beard, no husband, and looked like she had a banana in her pocket when she would see my grandpa scratch his balls with a fork then keep on eating his beans.

The key words I searched was Social Media, Instagram, Twitter, and pictures in the keyword search area; and the drop down tabs I used are, "United States, past 90 days, Business and Industrial and YouTube. Google Trends showed me the, interest over time, by the U.S. people was in the low 10% to the 25% range on social media and Twitter whereas the U.S. people were in the high 50% to 100% range on Instagram and picture searches. This is an awesome tool to use for any marketing plan or strategy, I was able to see where these keywords were being searched the most as well, in the top five States are District of Columbia, Hawaii, Alaska, West Virginia, and Delaware; The Sub region offered one phrase that was being searched it is, "branding yourself on social media", "How to make money on Instagram", "how to grow your own business on Twitter".

The keywords that I chose were Instagram, Facebook, and Shopify and the timeframe I selected was for the past 90 days and the information I discovered was quite surprising. Facebook is trending over 4 times the amount than Instagram and almost 70 times more than Shopify. Facebook is trending and very popular sitting at about 70-90 on the popularity scale today Facebook is at 71. Instagram is much lower on average between 17 to 25 and Shopify is the lowest with a score and average of 1. The most interesting thing to me is that Shopify is a newer trending company thats products are advertised on platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. However in the grand scheme of trends it is so significantly lower than both social media platforms. And even with extensive advertising of the products being purchased through Shopify people aren't directly searching for the word "shopify"
