Q for Google masters

Is there a publicly accessible (free) way to look at Google’s search statistics? Same question applies to other free search engines.

For example if I want to see how frequently a search was done for a specific term how do I go about it. I’d like to use it as a tool to gauge interest in various stocks.

This might be considered a poor mans form of data mining. :smiley:

I’ve looked through the Google FAQ’s and not seen an answer to this.
