    Hi all,
    There is a product from Google called Google Trends and there is a product from Google called Google Insights.
    I was wondering the difference between the two.

    What I feel is more or less the both products are similar and deliver the same information about the input keywords just in different graphical user interface.

    If I am perceiving it wrong please do guide me, as I know I am missing somewhere.

    I am looking forward to your expert opinion.

    Regards,
    Bliss

    Google trends shows hot searches for a particular period.
    Insight shows what people are searching for a specific country.
    The latter is slightly more detailed and is geared towards users (like advertisers and researchers)

    Yeah agree with the member above that Google trends shows the recent maximum searches by people on some specific keyword while Google Insight is used for showing data..!!

    Hey Bliss! Google Insights for Search offers more advance and much more targeted search than Google Trends. Although like it's name itself, Google Trends finds the latest trends to date which is still helpful if you are following a trend.

    Google trends show calculated number of visits to websites.
    Google Insights show the amount of searches on particular keyword.

    Google Trends shows the trending searches for a specific keyword, country or state, while Google Insights shows the possible trends in the coming days or future depending on the current Google trend, while also showing data of keywords that are increasing on search volumes as a day goes on.

    Thanks for all of the replies.
    What I know, Google hotrends is in fact the things that shows the very latest searches made.

    On the other side, Google trends and Google Insights both are showing country, search graph, and time period. Where is the difference then?

    Google trends gives a way to know that which keywords are seasonal or not.

    Even if you search Wikipedia from Google Insights it says that:
    Plus if you go to Google Trends: http://www.google.com/trends/. At the bottom also says that for advanced features go to Google Insights.

    What do the experts here suggest?

    Looking forward to their opinion.

    Again, when you say Google Trend - the current or present trending keywords with every country, search graph and time period while Google Insights are the upcoming or possible trending keywords IN THE FUTURE OR COMING DAYS that are rising in terms of country, search graph and time period which you can use to determine what keywords shall be targeted for your portal in the upcoming days.
