Apparently results are compiled from a combination of web based algorithms, human editors and pigeons… (well, the latter was perhaps based on a Google April fools from a couple of years ago…).
After seeing some dramatic changes in traffic volumes at the end of December for a number of our clients, it inspired me to write a post on the subject. However I came across some bizarre web pages when typing in my search phrases.
Google was probably the worst culprit, but Ebay also interrupted my research, by offering great deals on search volume… Silly Ebay – whoever is sorting your Pay Per Click campaign has an interesting approach.
Some of the search trends that Google highlighted were quite sweet, it seems more and more people are turning to search engines for advice rather than agony aunts.
