Hitwise has published an article comparing the search activity around the iPhone. Look at this…
“Hitwise search data can give an indication of the level of consumer interest in a new product. Based on a massive surge in searches, the iPhone will be a hit. The week that Steve Jobs demonstrated the iPhone at Macworld, the volume of searches for ‘iphone’ soared to rank as the 55th highest volume search term overall for the week ending January 13, 2007″.
Engadget, the tech blog that live-blogged Steve Jobs’ keynote, received a lift in market share of visits of 127 percent on January 9, 2007 versus the previous day. All Apple had to do was show its product at a conference, and let the consumers do the evangelizing.”
