What does CRUNCHES mean here? Wanna know what the most popular movies, albums and video games are? Ask the internet. But don't Google it. Check what other people Googled. That's the theory behind Google Flu Trends—which crunches search data to forecast flu prevalence. With admittedly mixed results.

Crunching data (as used in this sentence) is when someone or something collects and analyzes data to give results. So in this case, Google Flu Trends collects and analyzes search data to provide forecast flu prevalence.
