I know of Yahoo buzzwords, and Lycos 50, AOL top searches etc, but have never found much for google.
I figured he might of been talking rubbish but thought I better had check, Zeitgeist is ok, but not really useful for commercial purposes unless its relavent to your market. I think its strange google havn't offered some kind of service, i'm sure many companies would happily pay for thing like 'most searched shoes' or 'most searched computer games', etc.
I guess you'll have to copy and paste, the link won't work for some reason

Amazingly not. I volunteered to do the website for a nonprofit. A couple days after I got the site up, I got a panicked phone call from the head of the nonprofit saying that the site had disappeared.
It showed up fine for me. We finally figured out that it wouldn't show up for him because he was typing the domain name into the search box that came up on his default search page instead of in the address bar. He had no idea you could go straight to a site without doing a search and that it takes a while for the search engines to add a new site to its results.
Obviously, there are a LOT of people like him surfing the web.
