To kino.to alternative, itunes, ebay and Outlook!Written by: Christian Koch
Alternatives to kino.to, itunes, ebay and Outlook are searched most often on google.de. Say at least Google's search suggestions.
AutoComplete is called the Google feature that suggests a possible already as you type one or more words related queries and is actually nothing new.
When I recently researched for an article for alternatives to Google Reader, I just typed the word "alternative" into the search box and got - even before I had typed to an end - the following proposals:
I must admit I was surprised, so I've given up my actual research and now dedicated myself to these proposals. It is apparent that there are search suggestions that are clearly looking for alternatives to specific products or services. There are also suggestions for names that contain the word "alternative" as an integral part included (eg, alternative energy), and are therefore often sought in this combination (yes, finally it is not really looking for an alternative to energy, but the information on websites alternative energy included). Now the search is refined into "alternative", we obtain the following suggestions:
You see, the proposals do not differ greatly. The proposals for the Wortkambination "alternative to" refine the proposals only in respect searches for real alternatives to special things, so other products or services, which are relevant exchanges.
What tells me that now? Assuming that these proposals from the most popular searches result, one can of course pull the the conclusion that these searches are often searched on Google. In this case I would interpret these suggestions: German-language Google search users search most often kino.to for alternatives, itunes, ebay, Outlook and iPhone!
Are there other things that could have influence on the selection of proposals? The whereabouts of the search ends is taken into account as far as I know. I can not imagine is that Google Talk intensity of discussions on the web (there are forums, blogs or other websites) to the respective words / word combinations analyzed. That would certainly not be able to take place in real time. But I would imagine that the user behavior of a seeker flows here. After all, Google already makes it through Google Accounts and cookies. Against this assumption, however, is the fact that it really Wortkombinationan for some bizarre search suggestions are.
Please correct me, I should lie with my guesses wrong here! What do you think then? What is now the right behind these proposals? Really just the number of requests?
