Social networking website Orkut is the most sought after site in India, Sania Mirza tops among sport stars, Mahatma Gandhi is the most searched political leader and Aishwarya Rai the most sought after actor, says an annual Google Zeitgeist report for India in the most popular queries of 2007.
The Google Zeitgeist, which means spirit of the times, is calculated by looking at the aggregation of the most popular and fast-rising search queries submitted to Google by Indian users.
The report also shows that among male actors, Salman Khan is the favourite, but is on number two position after Aishwarya. Shah Rukh Khan, who delivered the two biggest hits of the year - Chak De! India and Om Shanti Om - is on fifth position.
Actresses dominate the list of Bollywood celebrities and newcomer Deepika Padukone has earned a spot in the top 10.
"In compiling the 2007 year-end Google Zeitgeist(tm), we studied the aggregation of billions of search queries people from India conducted on Google. We should note that no individual searcher's information was part of this analysis," says the report.
This year, Hollywood film Spiderman was the most visited movie site.
According the report, the most searched tourist destination is Kerala followed by Singapore.
