A Brief History of ‘What Time Is the Super Bowl?’

“On February 5, 2011—Super Bowl Saturday—Craig Kanalley noticed that a set of queries were peaking on Google Trends. They were all along the same lines: “what time is the super bowl 2011,” “superbowl time” and “superbowl kickoff time 2011.”

“Kanalley worked at the Huffington Post. His title was Trends and Traffic Editor.

He then leveraged that information by writing stories about those topics—stories designed to appear near the top of Google’s search results for those popular queries.”
