Google has introduced a top 100 searches words / phrases chart called Hot Trends. More than that, what we never had from Google (except the Zeitgeist), a daily history of top 100 searches.
The top was compiled starting from 15 May and continues till the day I posted this article (23 May).
The Hot Trends top is compiled only from US based searches (for now …).
If you click on any of the searches (eg. fleet week), you will be presented with additional information about that particular search:
- 5 Levels of Hotness (how searched the word is): Low, Medium, Spicy, On Fire, Volcanic
- Related searches (pretty obvious)
- The top search hour for that word (Pacific Daylight Time)
- The top geo location
- News articles for the searched phrase (linked to Google News)
- Blog posts for the searched phrase (linked to Google Blog search)
- Web results for the searched phrase (linked to Google search)
There is a Google Hot Trends Group if you want to participate.
More info at the Google Blog.

Only USA HotTrends? :(
Woah, this is way beyond the digest ability for webmasters.
Google Hot Trends is only for english search or there is another version?
Its interesting.It’s a new feature of Google Trends for sharing the the hottest current searches with you in very close to real time.Hot Trends aren’t the search terms people look for most often — those are pretty predictable, like [weather] or [games] or perhaps [myspace].With Hot Trends, you can see a snapshot of what’s on the public’s collective mind by viewing the fastest-rising searches for different points of time. As an additional measure, Google Trends only returns results for terms that receive a significant amount of search traffic.
I hope all spammers won’t use this oppurtinity just for some money and people don’t build websites according to these statistics.
