I was just reading about about the most popular searches of 2008 over on TechCrunch this morning, which was pretty interesting. I guess that Google publishes all of this search data every year under the name Zeitgeist, which after looking it up on Wikipedia I realized meant ‘the intellectual, cultural, ethical and political climate, ambiance and moral of an era’.

From a HubPages standpoint it’s always good to see what search terms are pulling in some heavy traffic – especially when it comes to what products are being searched for the most. Potentially this data could show some trends in areas where you might not have thought about writing about before and could help you get some of that golden Google traffic that we all love to see.

But, if nothing else it’s some really cool information to look at – definitely worth some of your time if you get a chance to check it out.

  1. I agree with the above post. I would have thought celebrity news was the biggest b/c even when something newsworthy happens, the most searched item according the the Yahoo home page is also a celeb.
