4 Jan 2011 – Update:
It seems this feature has now been switched off again on Google Insights. Guess they were beta testing a new release of the tool. Shame, but no doubt it will be back!
Nice update google.
You can now search for trends and insights related to Youtube, Twitter and Buzz! Great for discovering new markets, keywords and niches.
Twitter and Buzz search are still buggy because there does not seem to be much data for the last 90 days. I am sure that in September the world did not stop tweeting about twitter or facebook!
But there is some usefull stuff already.
Trending Video Games on You Tube
Here you can see a basic insight search, with youtube selected as traffic source, and Games selected as the category. Very useful if you are targeting Video Games in your campaigns.
The top video games on you tube by growth were:
- Black Ops (2010)
- Modern Warfare 2 (2009)
- Gta 4 (2008)
- Halo Reach (2010)
- God of War (2010)
Of course few of these are beating the most popular video games search terms on YouTube:
