Google Zeitgeist 2010: My African Career, Esther Arunga, Sortilegio and Makmende Ruled

It is that time of the year again where Google has their yearly list, Google Zeitgeist. Interesting trending in the list. We see the obvious ones like Makmende, Daily Nation, Shakira, IIEC, and World Cup. But the suprise entries like My African Career, Mari Mar and Sortilegio and others also came up.

For the region, only Kenya has the list released.

Google say in the post. “Kenyans this year showed strong interest in social networking sites and virtual realities, with “2go” topping the fastest rising list, and local superhero “Makmende” coming in second. Meanwhile, the “Commonwealth Games” topped Kenya’s fastest rising sports search, unsurprising given Kenya’s long history of excelling in athletics and this year bringing in 32 medals.”
