Google Zeitgeist results

Google recently released their annual report on search terms.

Another year has come and gone, and as always, we’re taking a moment to look back at the happenings of 2009—the people, events and memories that made this year unique. Each year, we examine the billions of queries that people around the world have typed into Google search to discover the zeitgeist—the spirit of the times. As we welcome the new year, we hope you enjoy this glimpse at the past.

Not too surprising that the King of Pop was also the King of Google Searches.

What I did think was interesting was what Philly was searching for:

Philadelphia, PA

  1. penn blackboard
  2. septa strike
  3. ccp.edu
  4. septa.com
  5. penn in touch
  6. penn portal
  7. penn library
  8. tumail
  9. tuportal
  10. wharton spike

Local college completely dominated, save for the appearance of the SEPTA assholes because of the stupid strike.
