Google has launched a Search Trends page for Philippine Elections for Filipinos searching online for information about the candidates and other related topics.
The popular Internet browser announced on March 9 the accessibility of the Google page focused on serving millions of Filipinos anticipating casting their vote in the upcoming national elections scheduled May 9, 2022.
The initiative also makes it easier for the media to find election-related data for their stories with the tool that helps surface the top queries, topics, and most-searched presidential and vice-presidential candidates running in the elections.
The page also includes data on the top policy issues searched in each part of the country, such as agriculture, economy, education, and tourism among others.
All the charts from the page are embeddable and will continue to update even after they’re placed on a media’s site.
The Google Trends Philippine Elections is not a poll or survey and does not reflect voting intentions. It merely reflects people’s search interest about particular topics at a local level over a period of time. A spike in a particular search query does not reflect that a candidate is somehow “popular” or “winning”.
For more information including how to maximize the trends page, visit the Google News Initiative’s website.
