    Interesting. I find the data from hitwise goes against what a lot of other sources indicate

    Check out this article in tech crunch “New Hitwise Stats Show how Bad Hitwise Data is”

    Just goes to show that using multiple sources for trend search or keyword identification is a must!

    Interesting. When John Naisbitt, way back, wrote “Megatrends,” he deduced trends by measuring column inches devoted to topics in newspapers and magazines around the world. I wonder if you could do the same now, by tracking search term trends.

    Hitwise offer a decent indication to a search phases being made on the major search engines. I don’t agree with some of the result they output regarding keyword popularities.

    In any event Hitwise is a great site to use for your keyword density research.
