There are several Google keyword tools, the best known of which is AdWords Keyword tool but Google Trends can be handy too.

How does it work?

Unlike other Google keyword tools, Google Trends doesn’t return actual search volume but rather a graphical display of your search term compared with the average number of searches over the period of time you choose. You can use as many as five search terms to make comparisons.
