    Yeah, it's pretty cool.
    Kinda oddish... in a way.
    But I like it.
    'Tis pretty fun. I like the city part, to see which city viewed what the most.

    I did the term NHL. I can't believe it, Canada is 1 obviously but the US is 7?! There are 5 countries that don't even have the NHL whose citizens are searching for NHL more than the US. :(

    As most have said, it is kinda fun to play around with. But what is the actual use of it? Sure, you can analyse statistical data from the net, but other than that....not much point to it.

    Well maybe it is useful for small businesses because they can find out where people are interested in them and all that other stuff.

    Its possible that people in the US already know that NHL is www.nhl.com and don't need to search for it.

    The cities look a little messed up because
    - Google

    So I think, they pick the city with the highest percentage of searches being the chosen term.
