Google zeitgeist 2011

The UK’s top Google searches revealed

While we all sit around and twiddle our thumbs in the run-up to what’s historically the worst news week of the year, Google has cut through the mountains of stats with its search zeitgeist for 2011.

Plus, we’ve added in the top search terms specifically, top ten searches on and the top food & drink brands. And no, we don’t know who Darren Criss is either.
