Weekly Top 10: Fastest rising search terms from South Africans on Google
With the help of Google Insights for Research we are publishing the top 10 searched for phrases (minus the sexy stuff of course) by South Africans on Google over the previous seven days.
The fastest rising web search term on Google by South Africans last week was for ‘Michael Clarke Duncan’ following the death of the actor best known for his role in the movie The Green Mile. The Woolworths BEE furore placed it second, followed by check-ups on the weather. The 2012 Paralympics also featured in the top 10 as did Multichoice which relaunched a number of satellite TV channels and expanded its HD offering.
