You do realize it is getting close to Christmas right?

And that these results are most likely being skewed by shipping list searches?


You do realize this report was from the whole year's (up until now) worth of data right?

People in general just mostly search dumb things, that's our reality.

These reports are compiled by the volume of searches. And since online shopping is a big thing in the last quarter of the year it would stand to reason that these searches would be indicative of people looking for products.

You also have to keep in mind how that's calculated.. it was the fastest GROWING search terms.. meaning that it went from .. like 0 searches to.. a million in a short period of time.


This is the correct answer. To add to it though, it also takes into account the worldwide interest. The government shutdown was more searched than the iPad2, however, hardly anyone outside the United States searched for 'government shutdown'.

It's really a guage on the connected world than say, the western world specifically.

They " forgot " the sexual topics.

Im pretty sure sex is in the top 3

so Celebrities, consumer electronic and sex.

The internet, all the world knowlegde at your fingertip...what an epic fail


As I understand it porn and related subjects are filtered

Besides this is the fast growing searches, porn is probably pretty consistent but still tops the charts
