* Today's Google trends do not show trends from the previous day. Instead, it appears that Google has revamped its trends option to show the year in review. At present, we do not know whether this is a seasonal change or a permanent one. Until or unless this change reverts (or until we figure out how the new format might contain the prior day's trends), we will only be able to present a cross-sectional look at trends as they appeared at the time of day when Trendilla was written.
