Google Fun

For a bit of fun you can now compare the popularity of one keyword or phrase against another via GoogleFight GoogleBattle. little graphics make this quite entertaining. Maybe we can use this to help students understand about use of different keywords to describe the same thing. e.g. murder versus homicide. Thanks to Miguel Guhlin for drawing attention to this.

Um, prefer the googlefight as it gives the number of hits, which might help them to think about how to narrow the search further
