See what Kenya is searching for

With Google Insights for Search, you can compare search volume patterns across specific regions, categories, and time frames. It is a very cool tool, and below is what I got as top 10 rising searches in Kenya for the period October 2008 - December 2008:

1. dv lottery +700%
2. cnn.com +200%
3. barack obama +190%
4. obama +180%
5. cnn +100%
6. prison break +80%
7. www.facebook.com +70%
8. public service commission +60%
9. premier league +50%
10. orange +50%

It seems like you all wanted to get a Diversity Visa (top rising search)? I also found "prison break" on number 6, and "public service commission" on number 8 quite interesting...
Note that Google Insights for Search aims to provide insights into broad search patterns. Several approximations are used to compute these results. Try it out and let me know what you can get out of it!
