Google has come up with a new website which is made up of search data. It was built by its news lab when working together with Xaquin G.V. who is an interactive visual data journalist. The site analyses data related to users who search for how to do things. How to do searches consist a huge number of searches received by Google as a search engine.
Xaquin explains that he was motivated by his own searches where he was searching for things he can do at home. He was sympathetic on how he was spending a lot of time looking for ways he can do simple things at home such as fixing a toilet pump or even fixing a doorbell.
The new site was designed by Xaquin while working with Google and its trends tools which allow users to enter their country where they will like to search and find out the top to do list in a given country. The things people search to do are represented in a systematic way. For example, in Canada it was discovered that people search to fix door bells, toilets and fridge.
The easy also covered top 100 how to searches which are made worldwide to see what people are generally searching for. The results are very interesting. Xaquin broke the results down into different categories and respective visual representation on how people search for them.
People are interesting in knowing how to make pancakes, lose weight, make money and boil eggs. Most people are interested in knowing how to kiss. Tie a tie and get pregnant.
