Data Trends of Shopping Websites

For our data story we chose to look at the trends of different online shopping website, such as Amazon, Craigslist, and eBay using Google Trends. Although search frequency does not necessarily translate to how well the company is doing, it is a good indicator of how they are doing. The more people that go on the site, the more likely they are to purchase something. By also observing news story's of the past 6 months that conincide with our data, we will hopefully see why this data is the way it is.
