The "sexiest woman alive" and first-person shooter video game
Medal of Honor were among some of the top Google Insights Trends of the last seven days.
American actress Minka Kelly, perhaps best known for her role in the series Friday Night Lights, was named "sexiest woman alive" 2010 by Esquire, ahead of the November publication of the men's magazine. No doubt this news contributed to the star's online popularity and helped make her the Google search term with the largest increase over the last seven days.
Following its release last week, first-person shooter game " Medal of Honor" was second on the Google Insights list. Previously the game has been set in historic theaters of battle such as the Second World War; however the decision to base the latest Medal of Honor in Afghanistan has attracted some controversy. The game retails online for around €43.
In the midst of the strikes that are currently gripping France, "SNCF" and "RATP," two of France's biggest railway operators, were popular search terms for travelers hoping to avoid the worst of the disruption, as both companies' websites provide real time traffic updates.
