Google Hot Trends

For more than six years, Google have compiled a regular list of popular searches called the Google Zeitgeist. This has been a way to highlight the sorts of queries people type into the Google search box every day. In October 2006, Google Trends was kicked off at Google Labs to show the popularity of search terms in relation to each other overtime, and how different cities or regions may care (or not) about the trends.

Google now introduce a new toy they are calling Google Hot Trends. It's a new feature of Google Trends for sharing the the hottest current searches with us in very close to real time.
