Xrank pulls rank over Google Trends

Google Trends is a fantastic marketing tool but experts say Microsoft's new search engine's new trend tracker xRank is faster, better and, well, cooler.

While Google Trends has a lag, the experts at TechCrunch say Bing's results are live.

"On Google, you can create charts showing the popularity of keywords using Google Trends. On Bing, this feature is called xRank. For all but the most popular terms, Google Trends shows a lag of about three days, whereas xRank shows data that is up to date as of today," writes Erick Schonfeld.

I took a quick look at this, but I couldn't figure out how to change the date range beyond the last 30 days. If xRank can only show 30 days at a time, Google Trends still has them beat.
