TechKing posted an infographic earlier this month that examined popular search terms for the top 10 countries on the Internet based on overall usage.
So, for example, in late-March Japan top trending searches were for “rolling blackouts”, “nuclear powerplant” and “earthquake”.
Head west and India was all about cricket, which makes sense since the world championships were taking place.
In the you are what you search for department, we in the United States were all about the Sheen, American Idol and the NCAA tournament along with a side of Tumblr. That “Na pohybel janas” you see? People around the globe are confused on that one. Seems to be a search bot but no one knows what it means.
Here’s my confusion: how is it that Facebook, YouTube, Yahoo and Google all crack the top five most searched items? And in a mind bender, do people search for Google while on Google?
For those counting, the search term “You” returns 15.76 billion results. Would be interested to know which “you” people are looking for.
Biggie version of the above with search habits of the top 10 countries can be found here.
