Looking at Google Insights for search is great fun. Sometimes you will gain deep insights into user trends and behaviour. Years ago only a small group of people had the possibilties to gain such information, with Google Trends and Insights nearly everybody is able to get such infos. The only thing you need is an internet connection. So this time I will have a look at some Google Chrome typos: gogle, goggle, googel, googl. This diagramm shows the worldwide searchvolume of four different Chrome queries.
But much more interesting than looking at the global searches is the local approach. Here you will see the results for US Chrome, UK Chrome and German Chrome. There are some nice differences in keyword preference. In USA the queries for “Gogle Chrome” resp. “Goggle Chrome” are nearly evenly distributed, in Great Britain searches for “Gogle Chrome” dominate the Google Queries und in Germany “Googel Chrome” is the preferred search query. But while germans use goggle and gogle nearly as often as googel, in other countries the distribution is much more extreme. For instance Spanish Chrome, where nearly 80% of all queries use the keyword Gogle. And if you would like to know a little bit more about google typos und mistypings, perhaps you would like to visit this Goggle Info site.
Round about a year ago Google managed to put a list of 29 Chrome Themes online, all themes were made by Google. This number hasn’t changed till today.

So you can pimp up your browser with porsche cars, Maria Carey portrait or Dolce&Gabanna decors now.
