Pulling together interesting search trends and patterns requires Google's
human and computing power together. Search statistics are automatically
generated based on the millions of searches conducted on Google over
a given period of time - weekly, monthly, and annually. With some help
from humans, and a pigeon or two when they have time, these statistics
and trends make their way from the depths of Google's hard drives to
become the Google Zeitgeist report.
We should note that in compiling the Zeitgeist, no individual searcher's
information is available or accessible to us. What you see here is a
cumulative snapshot of interesting queries people are asking some
over time, some within country domains, and some on Google.com that perhaps reveal a bit of the human condition. We appreciate the contribution
all Google users make to these fascinating bits of information.
