You may have noticed that Google's front page implements a style of auto-completion as you type in your query, ranked by popularity (although maybe it's not popularity, but it's definitely not relevance; I'm just assuming it is popularity). I've always been amused at what pops up after I type in a word or two, but today I was more curious than usual and started looking at the top terms for shorter and shorter word fragments. Eventually, I sparked on the idea of the most popular terms for the letters A through Z. So, without delay, here they are!
Other than 'Quotes' and 'Dictionary', the remaining words are large well-known sites or brands. We sure do live in a commerce and media-driven world, don't we? Hopefully people aren't using Google to find out the web address of Youtube; it reminds me of the Little Rascals quote "Quick, what's the number for 911?"
I've also noticed that the results can vary at different times, so the list you get might be slightly (or majorly) different. And different languages/locales provide different results (I just checked with www.google.fr). Which I suppose adds to the fun. I'll also leave the list of numbers (0-9) for you to look up yourself. Oh, the suspense!
Until next time,
