Google Releases Top Searched Terms for 2009

Internet Marketing December 8th, 2009


Google Releases Top Searched Terms for 2009In the usual manner close to the year end Google has released their 2009 Year-End Zeitgeist lists of the most popular searches for 2009. This year, in the global segment,  King Of Pop Michael Jackson is the most searched query. As millions of fans bid adieu to  the pop icon Michael Jackson, this is a silent  tribute to the departed pop icon  who made a long lasting impression on millions around the globe. Keeping away Michael Jackson’s unsurpassable popularity, this is an example of  how popular icons can create influence on searchers.

Facebook landed comfortably in the second spot among the global rising terms, while, being touted as ‘Spanish Facebook’ Tuenti landed in the top #3 position on the fastest growing list. This time Google added top searches by city too.
