Greg Sterling reported earlier this week on Search Engine Land that Google Trends has had an update. You can now download the Google Trends in CSV format (for later research) and can view the data on a numerical scale (on the Y-axis). Google explains that the numbers aren't exact search, but that these results scale to size:

These numbers don't refer to exact search-volume figures. Instead, in the same way that a map might “scale” to a certain size, Google Trends scales the first term you've entered so that its average search volume is 1.00 in the chosen time period.

Here's an example of what you'd see with the numerical data:

Also, on the bottom of the page, you're able to export the data to CSV format. Google reminds you that you must be logged into a Google account to get these full features.
