It will be a tough task to say what are the most searched keywords on Google. While it is possible to find out the most searched words on Google over the last day , in some cases weeks and so on.
I’m not telling what the most searched words on Google are, because I can’t do that, as it will always be changing, but I can tell about a number of Google services or sites that allow to find out information about search patterns. These sites are as follows,
Google Trends is a little confusing to use, but when you arrive, you get a list of the top ten hot topics, and hot searches. Then, you can type in a keyword, and see a little data relating to that keyword such as the search volume for that phrase over the years, and the sites with the most traffic related to that keyword.
Google Insights for Search is a little better at helping you find the most searched words on Google, but it still doesn’t provide actual search volume numbers, you have to compare words to each other, and you can see the countries that do the most searches on those words, and you get the top ten searches and rising searches related to that keyword.
Google Zeitgeist is released yearly, and it is a list of the most searched words of a particular year. Actually, I don’t know that it is a list of the most searched words on Google, but they list the fastest rising searches, and the fastest falling searches in different categories.
For example, in 2010, chatroulette was the fastest rising, and swine flu was the fastest falling. What does this tell us about the most searched words on Google? It still doesn’t tell us what they actually are, just the fast changes in numbers over a year.
This is a pretty good little device. You can enter in a keyword, and get a list of keywords related to it, with actual search volume numbers. It still won’t tell you straight out what the most searched words on Google are, but with the Google Adwords keyword tool, you can compare the words you think it might be, and see how many people are actually searching for them each month.
