Google Trends is a super cool (and free tool) for anyone interested in seeing trends about, well…pretty much anything, even the current 2016 Olympics.

As a Google Partner Agency and specialist Search Marketing agency we use the tool to see keywords that are becoming important for our clients business. This month Google gave the tool a new update, here is a quick run down on the new features.

New Google Trend Features

  1. The look and feel has been refined to allow for easier navigation and simpler, single screen viewing of data.

  2. Archived trend data can now be viewed down to the day, this used to be month-to-month only. This is perhaps the most important feature update, as we can now customize the range for specific dates when we know events are happening, such as news, sales, and product launches.
  3. Geographic comparison: Comparing two or more search terms will now show you which terms are stronger by sub region on a single map.
  4. Search term filtering: When comparing two or more search terms, you can individually filter by geography and time.
  5. Export to Excel: All of the data components in the trend interface can now be exported to an Excel CSV file.
  6. Mobile embed update: Mobile versions of charts for imbedding purposes is now available.
