What People Stopped Googling In 2010

Sometimes things get really popular and then they just disappear from our world... Where do they go? Is there a pop-culture heaven for forgotten ideas, illnesses, movies, celebrities, scandals and social networks?

"Based on the aggregation of billions of search queries people typed into Google this year, Zeitgeist captures the spirit of 2010," says Google Zeitgeist. So what have we learned?

Please listen to this song in honor of all the dead and dying searches out there as you read this post...

Wait till Eric starts singing to scroll down...

 

The fastest falling are...

 

Swine Flu

Oh Swing Flu, we hardly knew you. We had so much fun, Googling the H1N1. But now nobody cares because nobody gets the Swine Flu anymore.

 

New Moon

You were on top of the world New Moon... what happened to you? You really let yourself go. No nobody wants to Google you anymore.

 

Susan Boyle

I can't believe that anybody was searching for Susan Boyle to begin with. So you can sing? Nobody cares when you're an emotional wreck. Get your act together and do what you do well... sing!

 

Slumdog Millionaire

Not the most realistic protrait of life in India... but it didn't matter... everyone loved you LAST YEAR but this year they love Inception.

 

Myspace Layouts

Sparkles and web-glitter for everyone! I mean for nobody.

 

Michael Jackson

Well it took two years Michael. You've been dead two whole years and you're only finally starting to lose that bizarre psychic hold over your fan base. See you in hell, Jackson. See you in hell.

 

On the plus side some of 2010's fastest rising searches were:

 

Chatroulette

I guess clicking a button to see random people doing bizarre sexual acts has its benefits. Or, it did for a few months till everybody stopped caring...

ipad

Sounds like something a robot uses during that time of the imonth, and we can't get enough of it.

 

Justin Bieber

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I actually like Justin Bieber. His songs are sweet and fun to sing along with. I don't know why everybody gotta be hatin' on the Biebs all the time, yo. He didn't do nothin' to nobody other than be cute and sing pop songs. "Leave the Biebs alone!" (Sorry I was suddenly channeling my inner Chris Crocker.)

 

Friv

Do you like online games? Well then Friv is the site for you. It's full of all the popular flash games that everyone loves to play and it's all free. I personally can't get enough.

What have you stopped searching for this year? What's new on your Goggle list?
