Will Hou ... Google Search

Recommended Posts

Doesn't get more anecdotal than this but interesting what Google is offering as suggestions

(Edit: apologies was trying to upload a screenshot but it didn't work!! Apart from a Wikipedia entry for William houghton, next 2 suggestions were "will house prices drop" and "will house prices go down". People getting frustrated online?

You could do a Google Trends search for those phrases to see how sentiment is going. I would, but on phone and not sure if it works on here.

Will house prices drop. Clear Brexit effect, but already on a clear but less pronounced upwards trend. "Will house prices go down" similar brexit effect, but less upwards trend in advance (couldn't be bothered to post 2nd image)

(Edit as my mac decided that brexit should be corrected to breast)

The counter search is about availability of cruises and if there might be some dishy cabin assistants.

It's still happening a week later it seems.

Yeah, I tried to capture something similar but had a technology fail posting from my phone. The only thing is that google does tailor your results based on previous search history so you'd need to use private browsing to be sure this isn't influencing your results.

Good point, here's the private browsing version:

Just to add. If you search for a celebrity death after even a few hours these dropdown results are already reflecting that. So it's pretty real time data.
