Google Trends is one of the most popular SEO tool available for webmasters. The tool shows how often a term is searched with respect to total number of searches performed globally. You can find there Hot Searches (top 20 fastest rising search-terms) and Top Charts for search queries.
By having a look on the graphs, you can create great titles, tags and description for your posts to boost ranks in SERP. Other than preparing your content, the tool can also be utilized to show such trends on your webpages without any hassle. The graph content will be dynamic and will reflect latest data on the topics you have selected.
For example the graph below shows how Bitcoin gained interest over years.
Regional Interest Chart
Regional interest can also be well analyzed with the tool. Here is the chart for Barack Obama.
