Top 10 countries in “googling” the word (SEX), you will not believe the results!!!

The last release from Google is (Google Trends), with this service you can look up the search volume of certain words, also the languages and countries where they have the highest search volume on it. In other words, who is searching for this word you are interested in. So I was trying all the words that it could be interesting to look them up, one of them for sure is sex, so I will post the results here

Pretty surprising isn’t? What do you think?

If you want to try it, it’s on

Free Alaa Campaign

Egyptian blogger Alaa (who blogs with his wife Manal) was detained with 10 other young people by the police during a peaceful protest. Concerned bloggers have set up a separate blog Free Alaa! to campaign for his release.
One technique to bring Egypt and the Egyptian Government and the Egyptian Government's human rights record to public attention and perhaps persuade Egypt or shame Egypt into doing something about it is to particpate in the ongoing Google bomb.
Basically if enough people use the linking code < href =" "> (remove spaces) to link to the word "Egypt" then the Free Alaa site will rise up the rankings of Google searches for the word Egypt and draw wide attention to the issue. Come on, let's see if we can unseat the British Museum, which currently holds the top spot for such a search.
