Statistics were released as part of Google's annual Zeitgeist Report, which keeps tabs on what's capturing the world's imagination.

In Poland, the country's co-hosting of the Euro 2012 tournament with Ukraine generated a vast amount of internet traffic over the last twelve months, ranking highly in several categories.

Besides providing the most googled song in Poland for 2012 (namely Koko Euro Spoko by folk group Jarzebina), Polish striker Robert Lewandowski topped the rankings in the sportsmen category, while the term Euro 2012 itself was the third most frequently used overall in Poland this year, behind Kwejk (a picture and video sharing site) and Tablica, a commercial web site.

Meanwhile, the most googled person in Poland over the last twelve months was buxom model Natalia Siwiec, followed by the late singer Whitney Houston, while Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner leapt into sixth position, thanks to his iconic jump through the sound barrier this October.

In the 'what is...?' category, internet intellectual property rights treaty ACTA was the most googled. Other popular queries included 'what is taboo' and 'what is tolerance.' (nh)
