Anyone else notice "Google Trends" < [google.com...] > no longer works as a tool to compare two or more terms?
I used to use it to compare terms for popularity, e.g.- "lawyer,attorney" and it would tell me which was the more popular term based on geographic areas... now it looks like it reports what's currently "trending" on Google -- "Hot Searches", etc..

Thanks for the link.
"Google Trends" was a useful tool. Now it, (and Google Insights), appear to be more of a push into "social" -- just what we need -- another place to find out that Miley Cirus' haircut is trending.
If anyone knows how to get the tool to report as it did please let me know -- e.g.; see which term more people in New Zealand refer to a person practicing law: "lawyer, attorney, barrister, counselor".... or which is more searched for in Florida, USA: "concrete, cement", etc...
