I am fascinated by Google Trends. Type any word or phrase into Google Trends and it will plot the Google search volume for that word over time (GT also tracks news reference volume, but I'll ignore that for the purpose of this post). For example here is the Google Trends graph for the word "flowers":
There are two spikes every year, right around Valentine's Day and Mother's Day, then a dip every winter just after Christmas when folks toss out their holiday bouquets. Between Valentine's Day and Mother's Day is a small peak which changes location from year to year. That is Easter with its variable date.
The flowers index is a good example of the fact that every Google Trends graph is unique. Each one is a visual fingerprint specifically matched to one and only one search phrase. In many cases the graphs provide enough clues that someone could guess the search phrase from just the fingerprint. Or could they?
Below are twelve graphs showing Google search volume for phrases (one or two words) related to photography. Your challenge is to identify as many of the phrases as possible. You can check your answers by running them through Google Trends to see if they return the right graphs. The person who first correctly identifies the most correct answers receives 1) a free print, 2) a special photo-related surprise, and 3) everlasting glory (warning: individual experiences with glory may vary). Good luck!
