Stuff the world seeks…

I was having a look at the Google Zeitgeist for March 2008…A window into what people are googling for in different parts of the world….Interesting insights into a world where borders matter…

Heres some samples….

Afghanistan is pretty straightforward…They are looking for stuff on Afghanistan, Kabul, katrina kaif…

Australia seems to think in pairs…two word searches…Duran Duran, Maori Tattoos, John Mayer, John Lennon, Eva Green…

Canada seems pretty random…with folks seeking info on stuff like Curly Hair, Hotel, Pluto, Smoke…what are they looking for?

French are more real, looking for stuff on local politicians, actresses, holiday resorts….

India is a predictable mix of politics, actors, and a heavy dose of educational institutions…Exam results, admissions etc seem to dominate the needs of the online seeker…

The Irish seem to have more patience, and are keying in long search items – like St Patricks Festival, Spiderwick Chronicles, venessa ann hudgens….

Italy seems to be quick and neat…Stuff like Festa della donna (womens day), dieta (diet) and aborto (abortion)…No long stuff there…

New Zealanders seem to be like the Irish…willing to type in long search items…like pokemon diamond, vodafone new zealand…

Singapore seems to be geeky with people looking for stuff on Cash convertor, Time Convertor,  six sigma, and fonts…

UAE has a few surprises…With search items like NASA, Philipine News and Krishna appearing in the top 10…

Google lists this stuff every month…One category for ‘Zeitgeist by Country’ for all countries tracked, and a seperate one for ‘U.S. Zeitgeist’…Ho Hum…
