Because a Simple List Isn’t Enough.

Google had to go above and beyond with their “top 10 of 2008” list.  Instead of just giving us the top 10 search terms of the year, they came up with “fastest rising” term of the year.

Explanation for “fastest rising;”    “Fastest rising” means we looked at the most popular searches conducted for 11 months of 2008 (we compile this list by early December) and ranked them based on how much their frequency increased compared to 2007.

Google’s fastest rising search term of 2008??   Sarah Palin!!!

Fastest Rising 2008
1. Sarah Palin
2. Beijing 2008
3. Facebook login
4. Tuenti
5. Heath Ledger
6. Obama
7. Nasza Klasa
8. wer kennt wen
9. Euro 2008
10. Jonas Brothers

What’s crazy to me is that Sarah Palin was able to achieve that number one spot in the three short months (Sept, Oct, Nov) that she was shining in the American spotlight!  What’s even crazier to me is that people actually search for the term “Facebook login” on Google?

Why not just type in “”

They actually released a whole bunch more lists as well, but I hated them all so if you’re interested, click here.
