Google has become synonymous with search on the web, but what exactly do people search most for?
Detroiters, it seems, are looking for news, reports Huffington Post Detroit, which took a look at the regional Detroit list released Thursday as part of the Google Zeitgeist Report for 2011. Six of the Top 10 search terms in the Detroit regional summary are for local news organizations, specifically the TV stations. "Fox 2 News" takes the top spot, with "Click On Detroit" in second followed closely by "Wdiv."
Nationwide, people searched for pop culture – "Rebecca Black" was the No. 1 search – and Apple secured two spots in the Top 10 with "iPhone 5" and "Steve Jobs."
And what about in Bloomfield? According to Google Insights, a look at what Metro Detroiters searched on Google relating to Bloomfield yielded rising search results topped with "tv repair Michigan" and "Moodle Bloomfield," but then among the top 10 were Yoga Shelter, , Whole Foods, and .
Eat, shop and work out. That's what it's all about in Bloomfield Hills and Bloomfield Township – at least according to the all-knowing Google.

- tv repair michigan
