Search statistics for a statistics lover.
Google has published its year-end search statistics for 2006. If you like stats as much as I do, you’ll enjoy reading about the top searches overall, for current events, entertainment, and other categories.
From the Google Zeitgeist Home page:
Pulling together interesting search trends and patterns requires Google’s human and computing power together. Search statistics are automatically generated based on the millions of searches conducted on Google over a given period of time – weekly, monthly, and annually. With some help from humans, and a pigeon or two when they have time, these statistics and trends make their way from the depths of Google’s hard drives to become the Google Zeitgeist report.
The Google Zeitgeist is updated monthly, so you can get your stats fix regularly if you need to.
