The good news is that most of the major search engines already provide a portal into the queries that people make and to determine the most popular keywords people search for.

Some of these are indicated below for your use.

Google is the most popular and most frequently used search engine online.  It allows you to tap into it’s search engine database using Google Trends, Google Zeitgeist or the Google AdWords Keyword Tool.

Google Trends allows users to view the volume of queries people make over time by regions, by city, by language, etc.  It also allows users to compare multiple search terms and to look into Google’s Database Of Searches

Google Zeitgeist shows what people are searching for at Google and its associated specialty services in a variety of categories. Versions of Google Zeitgeist are also available for various countries.

The Google AdWords Keyword Tool allows users to enter a search term or terms and by the use of the drop-down box, to see the popularity of terms over time. Sign up to AdWords for access to this tool.

The Bing search engine now allows users a number  of ways to find  the most popular keywords people search for on their site.  It is also currently the only search engine that shows  your “friends” Facebook likes and dislikes.

The Bing social search feature pulls in your friends’ Facebook likes from news, celebs, movies, brands, opinions, etc. where you can then identify the most popular keywords people search for on the site.
