Comparing search data from the past five years through Google Trends, last year's Eurovision Song Contest was the most searched, closely followed by Athens 2006. Relatively, over the past five years, the search term 'Eurovision' was most popular in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Greece. Terms like 'Melodifestivalen' (Sweden), 'Songfestival' (the Netherlands) and 'Eвровидение' (Russian-speaking countries) were also more popular than ever on Google.
Google Russia ranked the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest as the number one most searched event, while searches for 'Alexander Rybak' peaked right after winning the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest.
In May 2009, Google and the EBU launched google.com/eurovision, featuring a prediction of the outcome based on the frequency of Google search results. Norway was correctly predicted winner, but ranked Hadise from Turkey and Sakis Rouvas from Greece too high.
