Brockley Central Zeitgeist 2011

It's time for the Brockley Zeitgeist 2011. While Google tells us that the rest of the world searched for Rebecca Black and Fukushima, in the Brockley bubble Brockley Market topped the charts (as it's currently topping the best newcomer vote), beating even the Lewisham riots, which dominated traffic in the late summer.

Students of social media will be interested to note that this year, for the first time, Facebook and Twitter have driven more traffic to us than search engines have (see 2010, 2009 and 2008).

This year's list of most popular search terms features far fewer random surprises than previous years, although bringing up the rear were searches for Mersh, which is the name of a local garage, but more pertinently, the act of dipping one's genitals in chili. All stats are from Jan 1 2011 - Dec 20 2011 and provided by Google Analytics.
