How the World Searched: Google’s 2010 Zeitgeist

David G. Johnson Raves and Other Asides Leave a Comment

Google knows what’s on your mind.

This year’s Zeitgeist from Google proves it. In just under 3 minutes, the search giant manages to hit the major highlights for the entire year in a very visually-compelling way.

Obviously, all the big stories are here: Haiti, the Gulf Oil Spill, even the current Wikileaks story makes an appearance. But the entertaining stories like Antoine Dodson, the double rainbow guy and even the South African vuvuzela add some sizzle and remind us of the things that made us laugh this year.

While hitting the highlights of the year, Google manages to showcase not just its search engine, but Google Earth, Google Docs, Gmail, Google Voice and Google Chat are also woven into the story.

A fantastic example of entertaining and useful content marketing.
