Google Release End of Year Zeitgeist 2005

Posted By Darren Rowse 21st of December 2005 Pro Blogging News 1

Google has just released their end of year Zeitgeist where they share a few details of some of the more popular search terms in different categories for the year on Google.

These type of lists are not only a bit of fun – I’ve previously used them in thinking about my blog strategies. While it is incredibly difficult to climb to the top of Google’s search results for these terms it gives you a hint as to what different people are into.

Plus they have cool little graphs! Here’s the one graphing the terms ipod, mp3 and podcast.


Top Searches of 2005

1. Janet Jackson
2. Hurricane Katrina
3. tsunami
4. xbox 360
5. Brad Pitt
6. Michael Jackson
7. American Idol
8. Britney Spears
9. Angelina Jolie
10. Harry Potter

Top Searches on Froogle in 2005

1. ipod
2. digital camera
3. mp3 player
4. ipod mini
5. psp
6. laptop
7. xbox
8. ipod shuffle
9. computer desk
10. ipod nano

Lots of food for thought.

    this zeitgeist sucks

    years ago the g-z used to have useful information like broswer statistics

    now they hide all that valuable data

    they don’t even have quantities of scale
