Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black Rule Google's 2011 Top Search Lists


Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black Rule Google's 2011 Top Search Lists


The annual lists of 'Google Zeitgeist' put Bieber as the most searched individual and Black as the fastest rising person.

One more look-back at the past twelve months before the 2011 curtain is pulled down is revealed. This time around, it's provided by Google in a form of "Zeitgeist" lists which see two young music stars Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black, who both claimed their fame through YouTube, ruling two of the top-10 compilations.

Showing the most-searched terms typed by people from around the world, the list puts Bieber as the most popular person this year. The 17-year-old singer beats Kim Kardashian, Lady GaGa and Nicki Minaj who are ranked second, third and fourth respectively on the "Most-Searched People" list.

The Canadian singer undoubtedly comes out on top due to the buzzing news of his new albums, "Under the Mistletoe" and "Believe", his then-ongoing tour, and his baby drama with Mariah Yeater. Even some of the mundane news about him being out and about also seemed to attract online readers.

Bieber's girlfriend, Selena Gomez, claims the sixth place behind Casey Anthony. Throughout the year, she repeatedly appeared on the front page of Google due to the release of her album "When the Sun Goes Down", her tour, and health scare. Her relationship with the "Baby" hitmaker and her hosting gigs at some major events also got wide coverage on the web.

Elsewhere on the "Fastest Rising People" list, Black shines brighter than everyone else, but it might be for the wrong reasons. Her "Friday" music video which went viral in late 2010 but continued to become a target of mockery in the following months, and her next singles which flopped, might have put her on the first position. She beats "American Idol" winner Scotty McCreery and teen bride Courtney Stodden on the list.
