Google Zeitgeist for 2006

This is a follow-up to yesterday's post about the Top Searches of 2006.

Google has released its annual Zeitgeist based on the list of the most popular search terms people typed into the Google search engine.

Interestingly, many of the top web searches on Google are connected to the theme of user-generated content, such as blogs, social networking sites and podcasts. Then again, the top "news" search was for Paris Hilton.

Google also provides a Zeitgeist by Country page.

More from the Washington Post article A Search for Ourselves: User-Generated Content Dominates Google's 2006 Hot List.

And those wanting a more sceptical view of "why all those top search terms from the various search engines don't match" will find it worth reading SearchEngineLand's article entitled The Lies Of Top Search Terms Of The Year
