What Searchers in India Were Searching for in 2009
Thursday, December 10, 2009
Continuing our week of top Google searches for 2009, we visit the great land of India.  With corporate woes and recession news, more people in India looked for ways to meditate and concentrate. Here is a look at some of the top searched for terms in India via Google in 2009.

Most popular

  1. gmail
  2. youtube
  3. yahoomail
  4. orkut
  5. indian railways
  6. yahoo
  7. google
  8. rediffmail
  9. facebook
  10. rediff

Finally Gmail tops the list of email services being searched for by users.  This is quite different than what we saw in Canada, the US and the UK in 2009.  Interesting to see that Yahoo Mail is still a popular searched for term.  You would think that people would just bookmark the site or add it to their toolbars as opposed to searching for it to simply login, if that in fact is what is happening.

Fastest rising

  1. budget 2009
  2. kambakth ishq
  3. irctc
  4. satyam share price
  5. bhuvan
  6. michael jackson
  7. twitter
  8. election results
  9. windows 7
  10. nokia 5800

Most popular celebrities

  1. katrina kaif
  2. michael jackson
  3. salman khan
  4. aishwarya rai
  5. shahid kapoor
  6. kareena kapoor
  7. shahrukh khan
  8. angelina jolie
  9. megan fox
  10. sachin tendulkar
 Only three "Western" celebrities made the top ten list of top celebrities searched for in India.

How to

  1. how to kiss
  2. how to hack
  3. how to meditate
  4. how to study
  5. how to swim
  6. how to draw
  7. how to flirt
  8. how to chat
  9. how to concentrate
  10. how to download
Similar to Canada, the top "How to" query was for "how to kiss".  Obviously this must be associated with a certain age demographic as I cannot see people in the 25-45 age group performing this search query.
