Peo­ple want to find the Alamo Draft­house most, ac­cord­ing to Google.

The search gi­ant re­vealed a list of the top terms searched for here and the Austin-based cin­ema was again the most pop­u­lar term, specif­i­cally, “Alamo Draft­house Austin.”

The cin­ema was also the top search term in 2011, where it led a list that in­cluded “kvue,” “kxan,” “austin com­mu­nity col­lege” and “sch­lit­ter­bahn.” Notably, none of those other search terms made the list for 2012.

The top search terms were from first to 10th:

Alamo Draft­house Austin Vi­o­let Crown Cin­ema Austin City Lim­its Mu­sic Fes­ti­val

For­mula 1 US Grand Prix SXSW Longhorn Steak­house Pres­i­den­tial Polls Austin Craigslist San An­to­nio Spurs Ran­dolph Brooks Fed­eral Credit Union

Google also re­leased a list of most searched-for restau­rants on Za­gat in Austin for the year. That list was: Congress Restau­rant Salt Lick Restau­rant Uchi Restau­rant Ve­s­paio Restau­rant Roar­ing Fork Restau­rant Uchiko Restau­rant Ed­die V’s Prime Seafood Restau­rant Z’Tejas Restau­rant Park­side Restau­rant Flem­ing’s Prime Steak­house & Wine Bar

The re­sults were part of Google’s “Year-end Zeit­geist,” a col­lec­tion of 838 top-10 lists cov­er­ing 55 coun­tries. World­wide, the top five trend­ing global searches over­all were, “Whit­ney Hous­ton,” “Gang­nam Style,” “Hur­ri­cane Sandy,” “iPad 3” and “Di­ablo 3.” In the U.S., top five searches for Whit­ney Hous­ton and Hur­ri­cane Sandy were fol­lowed by “Elec­tion 2012,” “Hunger Games” and “Jeremy Lin.” More info about the list is on Google’s of­fi­cial blog.
