The search term with the largest week-on-week increase in the US was, "rocking chair cushions," while ' Heelys for boys' was also a popular search term. Heelys are sneakers with a removable wheel in the heel, allowing the user to skate, while in shoes.

In Singapore, the Asics GT 2150 running shoe was one of the most searched for products with the term "Asics 2150 review."

In Australia the newly launched website Cudo was top of the list. The website, a joint venture with Microsoft and PBL Media, works on a similar basis to US site Groupon: a 'group coupon' is offered daily and if enough people sign up then the deal becomes available to all, if not, then no one benefits.
