WordPress shortcode to embed Google trends graphs

The first step is to create the shortcode. To do so, open your functions.php file and paste the code below in it:

 function wps_trend($  atts){         extract( shortcode_atts( array(                 'w' => '500',           // width                 'h' => '330',           // height                 'q' => '',              // query                 'geo' => 'US',          // geolocation         ), $  atts ) );         //format input         $  h=(int)$  h;         $  w=(int)$  w;         $  q=esc_attr($  q);         $  geo=esc_attr($  geo);          ob_start(); ?> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com/trends/embed.js?hl=en-US&q=<?php echo $  q;?>&geo=<?php echo $  geo;?>&cmpt=q&content=1&cid=TIMESERIES_GRAPH_0&export=5&w=<?php echo $  w;?>&h=<?php echo $  h;?>"></script> <?php return ob_get_clean(); } add_shortcode("trends","wps_trend"); 

Once you saved your functions.php file, you can now use the shortocode in your posts and pages. Here is an example of usage:

[trends h="450" w="500" q="wpsnipp,wordpress,+wordpress+theme,+wordpress+plugin,+wordpress+snippets" geo="US"]

Thanks to Kevin Chard for the shortcode!
