Kilrah_il writes: In 2008 Google found correlation between seasonal flu activity and certain search term, a finding that allowed it to track flu activity better and more rapidly than previous methods.

"Using Correlate, you can upload your own data series and see a list of search terms whose popularity best corresponds with that real world trend." Of course, Google reminds us that correlation does not imply causation.
