The "Zeitgeist Report" consolidates Google's billions of searches into a handy, interactive guide to what people are looking for around the world.

"Fox 2 News" takes the top spot, with "Click On Detroit" in second followed closely by "Wdiv" -- both search terms return results for Channel 4's website.
Also in the Top 10 were the "Michigan Talent Bank," "Henry Ford Hospital" and "Detroit Tigers."
Nationwide, people searched for pop culture -- "Rebecca Black" was the No. 1 search, and "Adele" came in 8th -- and Apple secured two spots in the Top 10 with "iPhone 5" and "Steve Jobs."
