less searching on "online casinos"

According to Google Trends, there is much less search volume for keywords relating to "online casinos" since 2006. Google Trends pointed out that the search for online casinos is hovering near the bottom ever since the U.S. Government passed the law UIGEA which prohibits banks and other monetary institutions in the country to process transactions to and from online gambling websites. Observing the trends chart; it is obvious that the search for online casinos on the world's most used search engine has decreased by 50% since 2004. But the decrease in interest started not because of the UIGEA, but with the arrest of BetOnSports CEO David Carruthers and founder Gary Stephen Kaplan. Although online casinos have nothing to do with the sports betting, they are all in the category of gambling and the most suffered industry was of casinos.
One more attention-grabbing trend you might want to know is the fact that United States is now down to 6th spot in the position by areas, when searching for "online casinos". Israel is the new leader with most queries coming out of Haifa, Israel. Looks like South Africa will be the new up-to-the-minute spot at No.2 and Costa Rica is at No.3 on the list. Unexpectedly Argentina searches keywords relating to online casinos more than the U.S., and Canada was also above. However, English is still the most language used for searching.
