Google's Zeitgeist 2010: How the World Searched

It’s always interesting to see the annual, year-end Google Zeitgeist and take moment to reflect on the past year and all the topics, events and people that held some sort of mythical influence at some point during the year prompting hoards of people to hop on Google and find out more about the flavor of the moment.

Some of the more interesting searches:

Fastest Rising People

  1. justin bieber
  2. katy perry
  3. selena gomez
  4. kim kardashian
  5. eminem
  6. lady gaga
  7. miley cyrus
  8. taylor lautner
  9. megan fox
  10. robert pattinson

Fastest Rising (overall)

  1. chatroulette
  2. ipad
  3. justin bieber
  4. nicki minaj
  5. friv
  6. myxer
  7. katy perry
  8. twitter
  9. gamezer
  10. facebook

I’m a little shocked that there’s at least a couple of terms from each of those lists that I’ve never even heard of. Not that I consider myself some sort of Google Zeitgeist Rain Man, but I do try and keep abreast of what’s going on around the world. Fortunately, thanks to the zeitgeist, I can now look them up and make progress on my lifelong endeavor of being the smartest man alive!
