Google Provides daily ranking of the 100 top queries

Google “hot trends” has a new results page where top queries are ranked. 

Providing a snapshot of what users are looking for, this has interesting applications for “wisdom of the crowd” and other predictive models.  A panel I attended a few months ago with Yahoo and ASK exec team members stated that they are back testing common “phenomena” such as American Idol winners and opening weekend for movies.

 Are there other money making insights?  Ie if the SEC could review search or ticker data, could they have any insight into “insider trading”?  Other forward looking applications?
