This may not come as a surprise, but it's certainly impressive.
Google announced on its Twitter account today that Sunday night's searches for the term "Bin Laden" experienced a tremendous increase. The search giant saw an impressive 1 million percent increase Sunday night in searches for the name.

The chart, also tweeted by Google, shows a giant spike shortly before 11 p.m. EDT, and an overall increase over the course of May 2. You can see for yourself below.
Oddly, the term takes a sharp dip following the President's announcement that Osama bin Laden had been killed.
Google's tweet announcing the increase:
