What the UK Was Searching for in 2009
Tuesday, December 08, 2009
Here is a quick look at what people in the UK were using Google to search for in 2009.

Fastest Rising

  1. facebook
  2. jogos
  3. ebay uk
  4. yahoo mail
  5. hotmail
  6. bbc iplayer
  7. hi5
  8. stephen gately
  9. bing
  10. spotify

Notice that in 2009, Britons used Google to search for other online destinations such as Facebook, Ebay, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, Hi5 and Bing.  This is evident in the most popular searches by folks in the UK:

Most Popular

  1. facebook
  2. bbc
  3. youtube
  4. hotmail
  5. games
  6. ebay
  7. news
  8. google
  9. yahoo
  10. bebo

Hottest News Searches

  1. swine flu

  4. robert pattison
  5. rihanna
  6. michael jackson
  7. google maps
  8. twitter
  9. stephen gately
  10. iran
People in the UK, like many other parts of the world, were concerned about the Swine Flu in 2009.  When compared to the US, folks in the UK were search less for Twitter (or at least it was not as popular as it was in the US).  Will 2010 hold similar trends?  We will have to wait and see.
