  Here is a screen I captured on January 16th, 2010:

  Now here is a screenshot from today (February 26th, 2011):

http://i1097.photobucket.com/albums/g352/kroptofer/2bitcoinSearchResultsAsOf26Feb2011.jpg

 that's more than a 47-fold increase!

 I guess I saved this screen-cap because I had a gut feeling that I will see a dramatic change in a short while.


 Let's not forget about AltaVista:

   January 23rd:

   Today (Again, February 26th, 2011):
http://i1097.photobucket.com/albums/g352/kroptofer/2BitcoinAltaVistaResultsAsOf26Feb2011.jpg


 And does anyone still remember Alltheweb?

   January 23rd, '010:
http://i1097.photobucket.com/albums/g352/kroptofer/2BitcoinAllTheWebResultsAsOf23Jan2010.jpg

   Today:
http://i1097.photobucket.com/albums/g352/kroptofer/2BitcoinAllTheWebResultsAsOf26Feb2011.jpg

 And here's Lycos...no, just kidding.
    but seriously,
does anyone have some older screen shots or statistics, maybe ones from 2009?

By the way, is it just me or did the Google logo get a little bit bigger?
Anyway, that's it for now.

Wow, this is incredible! Hope you’ll continue to do that. Thanks.

AltaVista is still around? I haven't used that since ... oh, the 90's!

I like idea of tracking how bitcoin is gaining popularity. Here's one more from me (duckduckgo Feb 27 2011):

Monitoring http://www.google.com/trends?q=bitcoin&ctab=0&geo=all&date=2011-2&sort=0 over time will also be interesting.

Well this one you don't really have to monitor. It keeps old data. There's also this: http://www.google.com/insights/search/#q=bitcoin about which I guess not so many people know because I saw only trends links on this forum so far.

Hey, it's not a good idea to try and measure popularity using the "1 of X results" readout on Google. These counts can vary a lot depending on what's going on inside the search engine at the time the query is issued, which datacenter you talk to etc.

Google Trends is a much better way of looking at interest as real effort is made to ensure the data is meaningful.

I'm sure BitCoin is getting a lot more mentions around the web, but don't take the figures there too seriously.
