How many results are produced by a Google search can be viewed as a rough measure of how popular a thing is -- how much it is talked about online. With that in mind, I searched for a collection of phrases in Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Each phrase was two words; the second always being 'control.' I took the results and charted them for curiosity. Somehow I am not surprised that 'remote control' placed first, but I hoped for 'self control' to place higher. The fact that there is more talk about 'birth control' than about 'self control' ... well, derive your own conclusions.
The values in the chart are expressed in millions of search results and are chosen as the median value for the three searches. Full data in my Google Doc.
