Financial crisis still doesn’t pass the bacon test

What is it that is really interesting for the Google population? The financial crisis? No, that’s what the media is interested in. People searching Google really are looking for cupcakes, sex toys and wizards. At least, that’s what Jonathan Stein found out when he compared the different search terms with Google Trends.

In the meanwhile the financial crisis has gathered a lot more search engine buzz as you can see in the following graph. But it still has not reached the level of buzz that bacon has.

When will this topic pass the bacon test?
