Google does so many things, that sometimes we could just ignore a few things they do that are quite useful.

On of these is Google trends, which might be quite handy to watch bitcoin's popularity on the web :

I hope this curve is gonna rise Smiley

Last time I checked months ago, there wasn't enough data to make a chart. Glad it's finally showing some stats.

Google has quite a useful group of features. Another one to point out - Google Alerts. Get an alert on bitcoins, and any new sites that mention bitcoins will be shown to you.

It seems like the trend is down..
Which can also be related that there is a slowing down of new businesses accepting bitcoins.

Yeah, the spike is from the Slashdot article, not businesses accepting Bitcoins.

Personnaly I don't care if no businesses accept bitcoins.  As long as I can buy some on some plateform exchanges, or via mail, I don't care at all.

Businesses don't accept bitcoin, nor they accept gold or silver coins.  And still, gold and silver worth much more than national currencies.

The fact that no one knows anything about bitcoins doesn't mean anything to me.

That is not quite making sense. There is a huge difference btw gold / silver and bitcoins. almost all banks and individuals would accept bitcpoins in the world. that also why those precious metals are so highly priced.
but bitcoins are a tiny niche now and alomost noone know about them and accepts them as payments. unless it gets more widespread and used as payments it will stay like that.

Even if it stays a niche, it will be enough for me.   Many things, not only precious metals, are not accepted as paiement, and still have a lot of trading value.  Luxury items, or collectionnable things (such as stamps, or art).

Even if bitcoin doesn't go mainstream, it can still have a real success.

Of course it would be nice if bitcoin gains some popular success, but to me it's absolutely not necessary.
