Google has recently added the ability to sneak into what people are looking for. This new tool is called Google trends. Is self-bondage getting more popular? Or vice versa? Let’s have a look:

Unfortunately not. According to Google, the interest to “selfbondage”, “self-bondage” or “self bondage” has been declining. The top10 of the countries looking for these words looks very surprising:

  1. Germany
  2. Czech Republic
  3. Denmark
  4. Russia
  5. Austria
  6. Switzerland
  7. Netherlands
  8. United Kingdom
  9. Norway
  10. Sweden

Where’s the US? My logs show that 40% of all hits come from the States and 70% visitors use Google. How trustful is Google’s statistics? Probably they do not have to search for selfbondage, they already know the proper places :-)

Another interesting thing is that Europeans prefer to search for “selfbondage”, while Americans favor “self bondage”. The volume of “self-bondage” queries is negligible and can not be found in the Google Trend.
