Google Insights for Search (See what the world is search for.)

<< Google is giving everyone a chance to peek deeper into its database of search requests and discover the things that preoccupy individuals and, in aggregate, entire cities, states or nations, at any one time.

On Wednesday, the company is introducing a free service called Insights for Search. The tool is intended for marketers, but it allows anyone to track the popularity of various words and phrases that people type into Google’s search box. >>

Umm....Google Trends? Shouldn't this just be a re-branded google trends v.2?

Yeah that's what I was thinking. The to services are so similar, Insights could just have been used as the next Trends. All they've done is added more features and gave it a longer address!

Now they have two almost identical products running side by side! (Little bit hypocritical as I like Page Creator and Google Video :P)

What's the Chicago Chicago approach? Never heard of anything like that.

This reminds me of Google Transit search. Why isn't just part of Google Maps? I hope they're working on that.

In fact, they could combine the Mars and Moon maps with Google Maps.
