Wonder how popular a certain character is going to be this Halloween? Or, more specifically, how popular that particular character is going to be this year in your specific area?
Well the data collecting minds at Google have made it easy to figure it out this year with their Fright Geist dashboard.
Simply choose from their expansive list of costume ideas (as general as “Pirate” or as specific as “Harley Quinn”) and you’ll be able to see how popular that costume is, it’s national rank, searches by city, search trends of the past dozen years and category popularity.
Google Trends is like having your own personal Bat-computer!
For example, with Wonder Woman we can see that she is trending more popular than ever and comic book characters are making up about 11% of all costume searches this year!
What will Google think of next!
