A recent article on Search Engine Watch asks whether or not keyword tracking of Google search terms could predict who the next US president will be.

The article looks at some regional and candidate name searches from Google Trends to get some insight into who the next president may be.

So who will the next US President be? Well, it will either be Barack Obama or John McCain.

The article doesn’t give a definitive answer, but nevertheless is still interesting for people who may want to use Google search trends to get some insight into how people are using the Google search engine and how the popularity of some search terms changes over time.
