Andrew Chen points us to Google Insights, a useful tool for web marketers or anyone curious of what people are searching for across the globe. The site lets you enter any search term or web address, and will spit out a graph of activity and a map showing where in the world the searches are coming from. Insights will also list related and “hot” upcoming search trends related to your query. Also worth checking out is Chen's search activity maps of mainstream and early adapter web services such as Twitter (as seen above).
