Troubleshooting

If you don't get the results you're looking for, you can try using different search criteria.

See top searches and rising searches.

Top searches and rising searches are only available for dates that are at least a week in the past.

Example: If today is July 4, 2016, your starting search date must be on or before June 27, 2016.

Get graphs of the data.

When a search term doesn't have enough total Google Search queries, Trends can't create graphs. Retry your search using one or more of these options:

  • Use fewer search terms
  • Check your search term spelling
  • Expand your date range

See an "Interest over time" graph when comparing search terms.

To compare search terms over time, use the same length of time for each search term.

Examples:

  • You can compare "search term a" for 2014 to "search term b" for 2015.
  • You can't compare "search term a" for 2014 to "search term b" for July 2015.

See an "Interest by region" map when comparing search terms.

To compare search terms over time by location, select the same location for all terms.

Examples:

  • You can compare "search term a" to "search term b" in India for the past 5 years.
  • You can't compare "search term a" in India to "Search term b" in Russia for the past 5 years.
