Everyone wants to know what everyone is searching for. Google has a culture of providing the top ten raising searches of every year. It’s this time of the year again. Zeitgeist sorted billions of Google searches to capture the year’s 10 fastest-rising global queries and the rest of the spirit of 2011.
Here comes the top 10 raising searches in Google for 2011:
Interestingly Facebook is out of the list for the first time which was one of the top searches from 2007. Google+ is the only online service from the top 10, down from 6 services last year (Chatroulette, Friz, Myxer, Twitter, Gamezer, Facebook). It’s the first time in Google’s history when a Google service makes the top 3. Previously Orkut was the 5th top raising query in 2005 and Youtube was 7th place in 2007.
