Google searches - what was #1 for Australia in 2012?

The question What Is Permeate was one of Australia's most Googled inquiries this year. But it was the Korean pop act Psy's Gangnam Style that was the nation's highest-trending search term on Google.

Lara Bingle was the year's most searched-for celebrity, behind Miranda Kerr, and Delta Goodrem.

AFL champions the Sydney Swans were the most searched-for sports team, behind Essendon FC.

Hurricane Sandy was the most searched-for news event.

The results have been revealed in Google's annual Zeitgeist report, which the company describes as a barometer for what captivates Aussies.
