    Initial Release:

    http://www.village-idiot.org/archives/2007/04/15/wp-zeitgeist/

    A zeitgeist is a visual representation of search trends. Basically, a zeitgeist tells you what people are looking for. The most-well known zeitgeist is Google's.

    WP-Zeitgeist provides a way to display search engine query information in a fun and meaningful way.

    WP-Zeitgeist is intended to be displayed as a cloud. Inside the cloud are links, the link text (what you see) is the actual unedited search engine query that brought a visitor to your site. The link portion (the click-through link) provides the actual page that was hit as a result of the query. The bigger the text, the more traffic your site has received from that query.

  2. Cool. Installed it, and it appears to be working nicely.

    Thanks :)

    What searchterms do people search Google and Yahoo for, that leads them to your site? You can find out in statistics plugins in the backend. Now you can display those Search Terms in your sidebar, as clickable links to the post that Google said matters most.

    This plugin rocks. I have it in my sidebar right now, however, thinking about using it in the Footer. It sort-of generates a nice keyword list, but it's also a skewed view of my site contents. From a reader-perspective (for my particular blog), I'm guessing this is kind of "I'm just browsing looking for interesting words to click and I got allllll the way to the bottom of the page and look at all them pretty words". I'm not SEO focused so I have no clue if that would be good or bad for it.

    Suggestion: If people could post more CSS variations for how to style the output, that would be great. I'm still n00b at mucking in the CSS code, right now I'm just using the default minimum CSS that whooami put in the README.
