Google Releases Lists Of Top Search Terms Of 2011

KHQ.COM - Google has released their 2011 list of top search terms. Google's 2011 Year-End Zeitgeist provides a revealing — and sometimes surprising — look at the people, places and topics that sent the world searching for answers this past year.

Zeitgeist — German for "spirit of the times" — is Google's yearly analysis of the billions of searches performed throughout the year. Zeitgeist uses data from multiple sources while filtering out spam and repeat queries, to build a series of fascinating lists, from the hottest searches of the year to the most popular people and the most riveting moments in sports.

Google released their lists of the "Fastest Rising" and "Most Popular" for terms in categories ranging from pop culture to science to sports. These lists show the search terms that spiked the most in popularity from 2010 to 2011 or were the highest ranked search queries of the year.
