Google Trends Releases Embeddable Widget

Google Trends has released an embeddable widget that you can place on your website. The annoying thing is that you can’t set what terms you want to appear on the widget. So, I’m stuck copying and pasting code featuring the default terms, which today are the top four contestants on American Idol (which was reduced to three last night), when I’d rather compare teams who made the playoffs in the NHL!

Still, users, if they know what the heck they’re doing, can click the “edit” button next to the terms and enter their own terms to compare. Try it for yourself below:
