If that were true, I would expect World of Warcraft's google
search curve to have flatlined long ago, but instead it's
still going strong.  What's driving all those queries if not
user interest?

I certainly agree that other sources of data will show
things that Google query history doesn't, but that
huge signal for WoW has to mean something.
