    I was wondering what the most searched word or term on google actualy was.

    because whoever's webpage is the top result for this term must be a millionaire.

    ? where did you get this list from?

    i can't believe bebo is no.1

    bebo is a social friendship site like myspace.. but not as popular.

    hummmmmm.

    The list made public by Google is a bit edited, though if you dig around their site, you can find the unedited lists. For example, the real # 5 is "yahoo" and the real #8 and #10 are curse words (use your imagination).

    Yahoo publishes a similarly edited list, and I've heard from a friend who works there that the real # 2 on Yahoo's list is "google".

    I think it's time we get to work and make a difference in this world and each of us search a million times the word "gullible."

    Here's a cool website from Google, www.google.com/trends
    You can compare two words, and it gives you a graph of which were searched more often.

    im amazed the list seems to made up of current events, the sample must be from a very short time period.. like the last 7 days, and so next weeks will be completely different... I really want the most searched word in at least the last year.

    Im also suprised by how english/amercian related all the searchers are.. i thought they were mad for the internet in asia. I surpose google is basicly banned in china that might explain it.

    4.kate middleton
    5.victoria beckham
    6.david beckham

    Why would Google be banned in China?

    I don't remember the exact details, but the Chinese authorities wanted Google to promise to release search data? to them and Google wouldn't promise to do so.

    Easy. They just block access to the google IP address for every user of every ISP.

    All of China's (and Tibet's for that matter - not sure on that one) web traffic is currently routed through three backbone pipes - all owned by the Chinese government. The data that passes through these is routed to the proper destinations (or with the case of Google - *not* routed).

    In essence, the government works like one large ISP, and has the ability to block or allow any addresses it sees fit across the entire nation.

    On a side note, their equipment is inappropriately maintained for its importance, with things like server crashes bringing the entire country's internet usage to a halt for two days (last June, I believe).

    Sounds to me like the starting plot for a terrible movie involving internet smugglers on an epic quest to bring an internet cable over the Himalayas into China, freeing them from government regulated information. Coming to a thearter near you, August 2007.

    I googled: Most searched word on google? Then hit "I'm feeling lucky" The site that came up was a blog that said according to google the three top searches where: Janet Jackson, Hurricane Katrina, and tsunami. Obviously, this was around the new year 2006. Something seems out of whack here, why would google return material for something a year old. Perhaps if the search is recursive in nature so that google is googling itself, then you get the top result from a year ago. Then google, googling google, and you get the top result from 2005. Does everyone see where this is going? Is it true? Could this unlock the secrets of quantum spin sup3rcolliding tim3 transv3rsal? I would appreciate your thoughts on this delicate matter. Thank you in advance. :bigsmile:
