Grid/plane, a studio centered in Portland Orgeon, collaborated with Instrument, to visualize media buzz across various social media outlets. The client? Google.
Working in tandem with Google Analytics, the Flash-based, interactive tools allow users to explore relationships and see the effects of blogs, as well as mainstream and social media over time.
While this particular project wasn’t really focused on Google search results, can you imagine how cool it would be if it were? One day we will get visualization in lieu of listed results. Trust me. We will also have power laces, self-drying jackets, and flying Deloreans. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.
Here are a couple more shots:

I’m curious, after looking through Google’s public API’s and not finding much, is there an API where we can query search/trend data? The Search API appears to be for adding search functionality, trends appears (I may be getting old websites) to be delivering results in CSV.
Unfortunately no, to many people, including people offering products that are in competition with Google products, would stand to benefit greatly by being able to automatically extract large amounts of data from Google, their are plenty of great ways to do it manually though!
Google trends (sign in to be able to export relative trend data to csv) http://www.google.com/trends
Google Insights for Search (sign in for export) http://www.google.com/insights/search/
Google Keyword Tool (Gives estimates on monthly query volume and paid competition for most keywords) https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
http://www.kartoo.com/en_index.htm is quite nice as a different way of searching.
