Google Search Queries

Google Search Queries On Google’s weekly search blog they showed us some very interesting stats breakdowns.This includes the proportion of users making more than 10 queries per day, number of quality improvements made by Google last year and median user’s location to ice skating rinks on Google Maps.  Some information very interesting and some completely useless – but it’s fun!
