For those of us that like data, Google has given its Trends and overhaul, and they claim it's the biggest since 2012.

Not only are Trends based on 100 billion searches per month, the data also includes News and YouTube.

Importantly, it also goes into great detail for in-depth research.

I love the data on github [googletrends.github.io...]

Many of these changes are based on feedback we’ve collected through conversations with hundreds of journalists and others around the world—so whether you're a reporter, a researcher, or an armchair trend-tracker, the new site gives you a faster, deeper and more comprehensive view of our world through the lens of Google Search.

You can now explore minute-by-minute, real-time data behind the more than 100 billion searches that take place on Google every month, getting deeper into the topics you care about.

Just to give you guys a clear view of what this is all about, here's an imgur screenshot showing it:

It's safe for work, so don't worry.

This update kind of depreciates websites ranked two and beyond SERPs, IMHO.

Note that it appears likely that the new Google Real-Time Trends is suddenly integrated into the Google algo as updated June 17, 2015. The algo is apparently boosting sites relevant to QDF-type queries (Query Deserves Freshness), and it's assumed that the new Trends, along with Twitter, are driving forces in this.

See report on an analysis of the algo update, which ties a lot of new Google features together, in this thread....

I haven't had a chance to look at the new Trends features. I'm very curious about the github data and how it can be used. This is all very exciting, as Google is now moving towards being both hyper-local and hyper-current.
