Weekly Top 10: Fastest rising search terms from South Africans on GoogleNovember 19, 2012
With the help of Google Trends 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 massive fire that burned down dozens of homes at St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape made the list of fastest rising web searches several times over as did the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge which took place yesterday. The release of computer game “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2,” released on Nov. 13, also made the list.
