Looking At The Current Face Of Search
What are people searching for?
Wordtracker brings us the top 500 search queries, for a fee. You can view the tracker at the site for free, or read the current list here.
Dogpile and Metacrawler both provide live feeds of searches. Yahoo lists recent searches in Yahoo Stores. Disturbing Search Requests is a user-submit based site.
Every search site should have a live feed, if only for entertainment value. Sometimes a Zeitgest just isn't enough.

Bonus: Wired has a famous article from last May, where a writer watches the searches as they come through Google on a huge screen. It's a great read, and makes you wish you had one.
