Based on Google and Yahoo’s annual web search report 2009, ‘Jackson’ topped both Google’s fastest rising searches and Yahoo’s overall searches. Therefore, Michael Jackson’s sudden death on June 25, 2009 made him the biggest winner in Internet Search Charts. In fact, Jackson also topped the Bing Search Engine and AOL as well.
Besides Jackson, others list in order was Facebook , Spain’s Tuenti, Twitter, Turkey’s Sanalika, New Moon movie, Lady Gaga, Windows 7, Vietnamese portal dantri.com.vn and Portuguese SMS website Torpedo Gratis.
Yahoo’s list, was Jackson, Twilight, WWE, Megan Fox, Britney Spears, Japanese anime character Naruto, American Idol, Kim Kardashian, NASCAR and online role-playing game Runescape.
Summary of Annual Web Search Report 2009
I notice from the top popular searches above were dominated mostly by entertainment elements. For your info, Barack Obama was among the Yahoo’s top searches list in 2008 before he became the president of US. However, his name was not in the top 10 list in both Yahoo and Google this year.
So, what or who will be the top internet searches in 2010? Any suggestion?
