Google shares their top searches of the year and correlates searches with natural disasters, pits pop princesses head to head, and suggests a seasonal search pattern for snowboarding. Well presented.

Very cool, though I think the lines on the graph are a little thick and are nearly incomparible when the results are similiar.

Very well presented. I think its pretty cool.

Isn’t it weird, that five of the top ten news searches are celebrities’ names? Three more are games and tv stuff. Do people really care more for Janet Jackson than anything else? Sick.

Agreed, that’s a really interesting information visualization, well associated with certain events. Better information design than before.

I think it looks pretty nice; the tabs with the big colored field, the graphs. Looks nicer than many other Google designs.
