Google Image Search -
Fastest Rising (U.S.)
In compiling the 2008 Year-End Zeitgeist, the Google search team studied the aggregation of billions and billions (Carl Saganesq) of search queries people typed in to the Google search box.
Except where noted, all of these search terms are most popular for 2008.
All of the search queries Google studied were anonymous — no personal information was used.
