@tsarstepan,
I'm proud to say that I have absolutely no idea who these people are:

gaines adams
preston castle (assuming that's a person, not a building)
tim mccarver
red robin (again, assuming that's a person)
raj rajaratnam

Why would anyone google them?

@Merry Andrew,
I'm only familiar with Tim Mccarver as he's a play by play announcer during certain baseball games and Red Robin is a fast food burger joint in which I've seen its commercials before. As for the rest? Their mind boggling trends to me as well....

Just a heads-up about the current lists, the most popular terms that are steady are not included on the lists (otherwise they'd never change and you'd see stuff like "yahoo", "google", "ebay" etc at the top of every list) and an algorithm filters out the regular suspects and highlights what has changed.

So the trends the search engines publish aren't the most searched terms, just the ones with the most upward mobility in the recent timeframe they are referencing.
