    Could find a post on this but please delete if there is one.

    Google have released their fastest rising and falling search terms for 2010. Very interesting stuff. Chatroulette is the fastest rising- beating iPad and Justin Bieber.

    Hope this plants some BH seeds for you all :)

    It is called zeitgeist because the word zeitgeist simply means the spirit of the times and what is currently mainstream and popular. So, obviously, these keywords that are being searched for are the most popular ones. The word also has to do with consensus reality, what people generally agree on.

    Always interesting to look at. Sometimes it can be used to get some good ideas.

    I am getting emberrased for living in Norway.

    Why the rest of the world search for the haiti crisis, oil spill.... the top searches in Norway was "ipad, iphone 4 and Justin Bieber". Although I am proud to say that I have never searched for the last!
