Yahoo has announced their top searches for 2006 a few weeks short of the year’s end. The year in review shows that some things change, while some things stay the same.
On the note of staying the same, Britney Spears has been #1 on the top overall search for five out of six years. (Her divorce probably has something to do with it and it probably isn’t “all talent“.)
What else is on the top 10 of all searches in 2006? A lot of celebrities and celebrity activities: WWE, Shakira, Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, American Idol, Beyonce Knowles, Chris Brown, Pamela Anderson, and Lindsay Lohan.
In the newsworthy category: Steve Irwin death, Anna Nicole’s son dies, Iraq, Israel and Lebanon, U.S elections, Fidel Castro stroke, North Korea nuke, JonBenet confession, Saddam Hussein trial, and Danish cartoon.
The whole list contains top celebrity searches (the list above only had overall search results), top celebrity babies, top blogs, top sports teams, top song lyrics searches, top movie searches, top TV shows, and top politician searches. Definitely worth a look.
