Google offers a pretty neat trends service that attempts to illustrate the popularity of search phrases over a given period. I’ve been having a little play.
Here’s a few quick charts using some reasonably obvious mobile gaming related search phrases illustrated over the past 12 months. The use of the word Free is my own assumption that the world at large wants everything for nothing!
1. Free Mobile Games, Free Online Games, Free Arcade Games, Free Online Arcade Games
I removed the word “Free”:
2. Mobile Games, Online Games, Arcade Games, Online Arcade Games
Hardly a dramatic change.
3. Mobile Games, Online Games, Arcade Games, Online Arcade Games, Free Games (link)
Just for a bit of fun I added the straight forward search phrase “free games” in to the mix. A popular search phrase. No real surprises there.
Hardly scientific but an interesting way to spend a coffee break.
