Compare Trends search terms

You can use Google Trends to explore multiple search terms and terms in different languages in (nearly) real time. Compare up to five groups of terms at one time and up to 25 terms in each group.

To compare terms

  1. Open Google Trends.
  2. Search for a term like java.
  3. Inside the Topics box, click + Add Term.
  4. Add a search term like coffee.

To remove a term, hover over the search term box then click X to remove.

Note: No misspellings, spelling variations, synonyms, plural or singular versions of your terms are included.

Compare Trends searches across languages, locations, and time periods

Compare terms across languages

If you enter a search term using non-Latin characters, you’ll only see data from countries or regions that use those characters.

For example, if you enter ”ねこ”, the Japanese characters for cat, you won’t see much data for the United States since many people in the United States will use cat as their search term.

To compare searches for Japanese characters for cat to searches for cat in English,, search for both terms by combining them with a + sign ”ねこ + cat”.
