Each year Google’s Zeitgeist site pulls together the annual trends in Google searching, as drawn from use in the United States and internationally. Check out the 2007 trends. From the sidebar, you can browse top ten searches in such amusing categories as “Newsmakers,” “Showbiz,” “All the Rage,” and “Top of Mind.”
Each page of the 2007 site also supplies a Google tip that changes frequently. One favorite is to type weather madison wi for a quick four day forecast with links to additional weather forecasts (particularly handy if you will be traveling soon). Or, you can type weather and add your zipcode (e.g. weather 53706).
