Most popular Google searches by Canberrans

By OzChick - 21 August 2008 39 has posted a news article about the most popular searches that have been conducted by Australians on the Google search engine. 

The article reports that the most popular searches conducted by people in the ACT are ‘politics’, ‘facebook’ and ‘porn’.  It must be a really slow news day.

[ED – they left off pot!]

“Australians and Britons have difficulty spelling the title of the Kama Sutra properly, while people in the US seem to be on top of it.”

Give that reporter a cigar. Champagne comedy.

Oh dear lord, one of the top Google search terms is “google”.

I know people who can’t get anywhere on the web without typing it into google. I’ve even said “type this in the address bar”, and they click the Home button to go back to google, then type in the search bar. :/

Google Insights does however answer the age old question of whether Canberra is a
Ford or Holden

Because if someone had owned a Trademark and ‘aggressively defended’ it, that would be less of an issue now. 😛

But the lack of understanding of modern technology the everyman and everywoman posseses amazes me every day.

I’ve had to google Riotact in the past, as the url is quite poor. There’s some punctuation in it that makes it hard to type straight in. woudl have been better (assume was taken).

Everyday hundreds of people google riotact to get here.

It works for them so they keep doing it.

That’s because trying to guess the URL lands you in some very weird places…
