Who ever would have thought you would hear those three names grouped together?
Every week Google details the most popular searches that go through their site. In this column, I will be detailing the correlations between the Google Zeitgeist and Blogcritics stories. I find the waves of popularity in search terms to be fascinating and I think the correlations to Blogcritics material will be interesting.
Sometimes the correlations will be obvious like when the Janet Jackson thing happened, and I had just happened to write a story about that Super Bowl halftime show before it happened and a traffic landslide ensued. Other times we have stories that pre-date the appearance of a search item on the list and it will be interesting to look at an old Blogcritics story through the lens of more recent developments.
