This initiative is similar to Google Zeitgeist, but it is not based on searches done on Google. It is rather based on searches done by users on JS Classes. It is the same process of the PHP Zeitgeist initiative run by the PHP Classes site, except that this was started in 2011, the year after when the JS Classes was launched in 2010.
It works by building a ranking of all keywords used in searches performed by users during 2014. Then it builds a ranking of the top 100 keywords that become relevant in 2014 but were not listed in the rankings of the previous years.
Here follows a list of trending topics related with keywords that become relevant in 2014.
