    Here is a neat trick to find out how good any keyword or phrase might be. It can also be used for people and many other types of searches This is a U build-it tool but easy to do.

    First you need an account at docs.google.com which is free of course. This can be used for many different things, not just the one I am outlining here.

    Secondly, it is possible to set up a search query in google that will check how many times any word or phrase or name has been searched for during the past year, week, day, hour, second depending on the time frame you want to seach results for. I took one such search and revamped it in Google Docs with a link that is different for year, week, day, hour, second but using one search phrase. I can set up as many of those pages as I want and search for whatever I want and all I have to do is change the search term in each of the 5 search links on each page and get results simply by clicking on each link in the page. That way I can see how many searches were performed during each time frame. I can also search for any time period I want.

    All you have to do is go to http://docs.google.com/View?id=dfbnbmv_84z8j4txzb and you can copy my template and paste it into your own Google Docs page, change the search term to whatever you want and start clicking away. You can then copy your own page and paste it into a new document. That way you can do an ego search every day to see how many people click on your web page or web site. I'm sure you could also make a page for CL pages too. Haven't tried that. There are a ton of potential uses for this and your imagination is the limit to how many different terms you want to set up and do daily or weekly or whatever time frame you want to search for that same phrase.

    Another cute trick is that you can set up OPEN OFFICE to collaborate with Google Docs. Then you can download your page from Google Docs, do a find and replace to change the search terms and upload it back into Google Docs and you are all ready to go quick and easy.

    Another trick to use with Google Docs is write your article in Open Office or Google Docs then upload them to slideshare. The reason to do that is because Google won't let their Docs pages get out on the net so there isn't any chance to get publicity that way but you can upload them to Slideshare and they become searchable very quickly.

    Write an article of some kind and put it on Google Docs then upload it to Slideshare complete with your contact information or whatever you want to put on it. Its a great tool to get the word out on whatever subject you want to get publicized.

    One problem to getting original articles is finding a continual stream of ideas to write about. I cure that problem by being on several different forums dealing with credit repair, debt collectors and lawsuits against them. One of those is that I am a so called expert on allexperts.com. I answer people's questions about their financial problems then copy and paste them into Google Docs and on to Slideshare. I can upload an image file giving my contact and other information with each response which helps people know how to contact me and I get a lot of business that way.

    On forums I can click on the little post number in the upper right hand corner of any message I write and that brings it up in a separate window. I can then copy and paste it into a Google Doc page and take out all the links and other stuff I don't need then publish the "article" and upload it to SlideShare then on to other places by burning an RSS feed on the Slideshare page and it goes everywhere from there and I do mean EVERYWHERE using Yahoo pipes and other various tricks.

    Hope you like my little suggestion. It does take a bit of work to implement but the benefits can last for years.

    OP, I re-read your post several times, but I'm not getting where you find out how many searches were performed.

    For example, when I look at this:
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/search?q=creditwrench&hl=en&tbo=1&tbs=qdr:d
    
    .. that is for the past 24 hours. I see 3 listings. But where's the "see how many searches were performed" part? :confused:

    That query only displays pages that have been indexed in the past X(time) - I don't see anything about search volume.

    Pardon my understanding..

    But why do you want us to save the file in Google docs? When we can do this directly..

    search in google.. click on show options and then navigate for search term..

    Edit: Yea, where is the number of keyword search part?

    It's in the upper right hand area, where you'd normally find the return for search results. In this case, when I just did it...

    Guys, that web search is showing results for sites/articles that were *created* in the past x amount of time -- it's not showing how many times it was searched for.

    For example: http://www.google.com/search?q=creditwrench&hl=en&output=search&tbs=qdr:d&tbo=1

    The first one that comes up is a zimbio article from 20 hours ago, the next is a bizmore thing from 7 hours ago, etc. This is the same tool as one uses in the "news" part of Google to find news stories in the past hour, day, week, month, etc.

    Unless I'm completely missing something here, the OP has a misunderstanding of what it is Google is showing him/her. I still appreciate the effort that went into the thread, but I don't think the information is accurate.

    I agree, I think the OP was confused. It's too bad though I was got excited for a second. :)

    This has absolutely nothing to do with search volume. The only way you're going to get google to reveal the actual search volume for the last X amount of hours is to throw some money at an adwords test.

    Having said that, however, this method can be used to check out what new content google is indexing and can give you some good insight into what your competition is doing as well as an idea of how many and what type of new sites are appearing in your niche. So thanks for that.

    Yes, anybody can do it with the "Show options" function in Google Web Search.
