I used "trendyy", an interesting R package for querying Google Trends, to obtain and visualize the search popularity of Dutch universities over the past few years.
The results were not exactly what I expected to be!🤔

@hiemstra @Erik @imuhammad You included University of Twente only? Then I understand the results. University of Twente is not used very often. TU Delft only has one search term. For us, the traffic is spread across three search terms. UTwente, University of Twente and Universiteit Twente. 80% of our traffic originates from NL and they are most likely to use UTwente or Universiteit Twente.

@Heining @hiemstra @imuhammad Aah, I don't know. Could you include 3 alternatives for each university @imuhammad ?

Distribution of search frequencies for"UTwente" in the Netherlands.
It seems that UT has no presence in the west of the Netherlands :)
