iPhone Tops List of Fastest Growing Google Search Terms

Though it will probably come as no surprise to iPhone owners or those who frequent sites like this, the search term "iphone" has topped off Google's list of fastest growing search terms for 2007. iPhone was joined on the list by other non-surprises such as "heroes", "tmz", and "facebook". Also making the list was something called a "webkinz", which this author is happily stupified by.

Last year's fastest growing Google search term was "bebo".

The Google list was announced by Marissa Mayer, Google's Vice President of Search and User Experience, yesterday morning on the Today Show. Traditionally, Google doesn't release their list until later in December, but this year they more closely followed Yahoo's release of their top 2007 searches (which incidentally was crowned by "Britney Spears").

Here is the full list of Google's fastest growing search terms for 2007:

1. iphone
2. webkinz
3. tmz
4. transformers
5. youtube
6. club penguin
7. myspace
8. heroes
9. facebook
10. anna nicole smith

Both companies lists do not reflect the highest search volumes of 2007, but rather indicate which terms have grown the most in volume as compared to the preceeding year. In 2006, Google described these as "explosive" search terms.

No doubt it is the most searched word on google. Mark my words iPhone will remain the most searched word for the coming 2-3 years and no one will be able to match the fast pace of Apple's innovation.

"Webkinz" is a $10 stuffed animal for kids that has a companion website where the kid can "adopt" the new stuffed animal, as well as feed an online version of it, buy it stuff, and interact with friends who also have adopted webkinz. It's web 2.0 for the under 8 yrs set.
