An RSS Feed for Google Zeitgeist is Now Available

Since Google doesn’t offer an “official” RSS (or ATOM) feed for their Google Zeitgeist rankings of popular search terms, Kunal Anand decided to create one using a “screen scraper” he built with Perl code. Here’s a link to the GZeitgeist feed along with some technical details posted on Kunal’s blog. On Searchblog, JB wonders if the feed will be around for long since it’s a screen scrape.

On a related note, the Yahoo Buzz Index of popular search terms offers a number of “official” RSS feeds.
