Google’s Most Searched List of 2011

December 16, 2011

Google, Hot and Latest

End of 2011 is approaching and Google has released its annual Zeitgeist report for the most popular search terms of 2011.

Google also compared the searches of 2011 with that of 2010 to find out the emerging trends. YouTube sensation Rebecca Black was at the #1 spot for fastest rising term, followed by Google’s own social network Google+. Third spot was taken by Ryan Dunn who dies in a car crash this summer.

If you talk about the search terms alone, Apple dominated with taking almost all of the top spots. “iPhone 5”, “Steve Jobs”, “iPad 2” were all part of the top 10 list of the fastest rising search terms.

Globally cupcakes and Japan made to the top in their lists. Cupcakes was at the top of the food list while “東京 電力” (TEPCO, owners of the Japanese nuclear power plant that was damaged by the earthquake earlier this year) became the first non-Latin term to make Google’s fastest-rising search list.

Check out the video for an overview of the report.
