Google Zeitgeist: What the world is searching for

zeitĀ·geist Pronunciation: 'tsIt-"gIst, 'zIt Function: noun Etymology: German, from Zeit (time) + Geist (spirit) Date: 1884 Meaning: the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era.

In some cases, Google wants to share information about what its users are looking for.

Google Zeitgeist lets the world know what its Googling. A quick glance through counties' stats illustrate international interest in Harry Potter and Paris Hilton, amongst others.
