How do I Interpret this data?

  • Kolkata, Trivandrum are virtually not present
  • Maharashtra, Gujarat are not trending
  • People in big metros are not searching; second level cities are Googling
  • The current momentum is much bigger than the Mar-Apr protest. It has drawn more attention of cyber folks.
  • Sun TV, Kalainjar News, Zee Tamil channels are not giving attention to the Delhi events; Anna Hazare is virtually unsearched in தமிழ்
  • அண்ணா, அன்னா, ஹசாரே, ஹஸாரே – everything is lower ranked in popularity than typical ரஜினி, கமல், கலைஞர்
  • Corruption, Lokpal has become synonymous words with Anna Hasare
