Google Trends on Music Think Tank

I just added multiple Google Trends as clickable links on the left side of Music Think Tank. Any time you want to review a current music industry trend, just click the link to the trend you want to review.

Each graph generated by Google Trends demonstrates two trends:

  • The upper trend line demonstrates global keyword search trends (the number of times a word or phrase is entered into the Google search box).
  • The lower trend line demonstrates occurrences of each word or phrase on blogs and websites around the world.

All the data in graphs produced by Google Trends is normalized. For most of the graphs below, the number 1 represents the average across a time span. Read more about Google’s graphing methods.

I decided to put all these graphs into one post, because it’s the best way to get the big picture.  Graphs are shown below each title.

There are some interesting trends to note. What do you think? What other trends should we link to?

Its interesting to see that the graphs for radio stations and record labels have decreased significantly, while the graphs for music blogs and facebook/myspace have increased. Sign of the times.

Very interesting, thanks for putting this together.

I thought the most interesting one was the decrease in "Free MP3s." I wonder why that is.

Very interesting article, Bruce. I like how you utilize these tools to target better audiences. This will be very helpful in my marketing. You will save me time focusing on effective keywords, such as the subtlety between "Free mp3's"and "Free music". Nice knowing what the people want.
