Google Zeitgeist for 2008 has been released, outlining the most popular search terms from around the world in a variety of categories. It also includes geographic breakdowns, outlining the top search terms in Google from individual nations.
Here's a look at the fastest rising terms for 2008. And number one is hardly shocking.
1. sarah palin
2. beijing 2008
3. facebook login
5. heath ledger
7. nasza klasa
8. wer kennt wen
9. euro 2008
10. jonas brothers
The staff here at TechWyse will know of my personal glee at number 9, while I will probably do a facepalm at number 3. I mean really now! One, it's Facebook-the URL isn't that hard to remember. Two, Google doesn't know your log in. Trust me on that one.
I'm a little surprised that Obama only ranked at 6 globally (he was number 1 in the United States), given the immense popularity and interest in him during the year, but especially in the run-up to the election.
Check out the Zeitgeist results from a number of nations. I find both the similarities and differences in results extremely interesting.
