Godzilla Trailer buzz is fueling Internet search, at least on Google.
The announcement over the weekend that the first Godzilla Trailer for the upcoming Godzilla, will be introduced Tuesday (and you can see it here at Zennie62.com at 1 PM EST, 10 AM PST) has caused a 100 percent increase in search intensity for the name, or keyword, “Godzilla.”
According to Google Trends and the app that was previously called Google Insight For Search, starting on December 6th, or about the time that the date of the appearance of the first Godzilla trailer was told via social media, search for “Godzilla” rose steadily, but rapidly.
Twitter Tweet Activity
And the Godzilla Trailer interest has impacted Twitter tweet activity, too. According to Tweet Reach, there have been 50 tweets every 42 seconds thus far for the morning of Monday, December 9th at 10:46 AM EST.
But the question is, is that enough to fuel a Twitter trend, and the answer is no. According to this blogger’s analysis of past Twitter trends, and experience with social media clients, one generally needs to generate 100 Twitter tweets per minute to hit the mark.
That Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures elected to announce a time for the release of the Godzilla trailer points to a possible scenario where the Twitter trend chart could be reached. The anticipation for the moment, and the teasing of it with the MUTOResearch.net website, points to that possibility.
What the producers should hope for is to reach both Twitter trends and Google Trends on the same day after the Godzilla Trailer is released.
That achievement will help overcome the lateness of the movie’s marketing effort.
