Indians are top Google doodlers
Indian cities lead the world in in the search for Google Doodles, according to Google Trends data. Chennai leads the pack, followed by Bangalore. Mumbai and New Delhi are placed third and fourth in the global search for Google Doodles.
A doodle is an unfocused drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied. They could have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes. But Doodles have come a long way with technological advances and animation technology has been able to modify Doodles towards gaming.
“Google Doodles are nice creative measures to attract attention and people sometimes forget their search and end up playing games with Doodles” says Taher Ahmed, an avid doodler in the city.
The four Indian cities turned leaders in the global search for Google Doodles during and after the London Olympics. Many Indians who could not be in London to witness the Olympics live, decided to play their own Olympic games on the Google Search home page. In fact, the search reached its peak volume during August 2012, during the Olympics, and search terms including ‘Google Doodle games’ and ‘Doodle jump’ have reflected in the top searched keywords, the Google Trends insight indicates.
Google Trends data from the past 12 months shows that while search for these engaging Doodles had their share of rise and fall, the month of August 2012 took the interest in Google Doodles to a new level among the Indian cities.
Doodle games like Soccer 2012 Google Doodle, Basketball 2012 Google Doodle and several other games in the form of doodles enthused Indians.
Some Bangaloreans perceive Google Doodles to be stress-busters while others addicted to it take it to be a source of entertainment . “It’s a kind of an entertainment while browsing and it adds freshness everyday to the site ...the part which I liked the best in it is playing games. ,” says Vinay Kumar, an engineering student.
Last year, users got to explore 20,000 leagues under the sea with Jules Verne, shared a tune they strummed on the Les Paul guitar, and even became a part of Google’s biggest animated Doodle so far – commemorating Little Nemo, the main character in the comics strips of Winsor McCay, published in the New York Herald and the New York American from 1905 to 1914.
