Google Insights For Search

Google Insights for Search is another great tool that can help marketers plan and refine their campaigns. It lets you compare search volume patterns by category and geography over time. You can explore seasonality, geographic, and product trends. As an example, by analyzing geographic trends over time of search patterns for your brand and your category, you might identify a high ROI metropolitan area to focus a concerted marketing effort.
