2010 Top Trends: Philippines Most Searched


2010 was a weird year for search in the Philippines. I wouldn’t really have said that, but considering the number one searched item on Google in 2010 for the Philippines is the word “jejemon,” I’m now starting to believe that the end of the world is very near.

The 2010 Google Zeitgeist top trends for the Philippines is all about triumphs, from the success of the 2010 automated elections and the election of a new president in Noynoy Aquino, to Manny Pacquiao’s back-to-back victories against Joshua Clottey and Antonio Margarito. Venus Raj, 4th runner up in this year’s Miss Universe Pageant, snatched #2 on our list of fastest rising local newsmakers, and Charice, fresh off her Glee appearance, is this year’s fastest rising local music artist.
