Your digital marketing is only as effective as your efforts to find the right target audience who’s interested in what you have to say. While there are many marketing tools available to do just that, figuring out which ones can bring you the most value and return on investment is crucial. Today, let’s take a closer look at a free Google data explorer called Google Trends.
With Google Trends, you can not only explore what the world is searching in real time, but you can also use your findings to later target specific keywords in your marketing efforts. Such database is priceless nowadays if you take into the consideration the fact Google handles over 3.5 billion searches per day across the globe.
Having access to such a vast database (for free) can be a very powerful digital marketing tool. Knowing what’s the most popular search term is relevant to marketers finding the map to a pot of gold. While they’re not exactly digging for gold yet, at least they have a very good idea on where to start.
How to Use Google Trends
You can use Google Trends to see search interest in a topic or search term over time, where it’s being most-searched and what else people search for in connection with it. You can also compare trends against each other and look at data regionally vs all other searches. In addition, a new Google Trends update allows now filtering the trends in a real or non-real time, meaning you can access data going back as far as 2004.
Google Trends can be especially useful if your marketing focuses on content storytelling. Seeing trends in what people are searching for and how they’re responding to different moments can easily explain the magnitude of each event over time.
