Microsoft looks to Hollywood buzz to give its search service a boost, with the arrival of Live Search xRank for the hoi polloi.

Live Search’s Andy Lam pointed out the inside scoop about xRank on the service’s blog:

  • The xRank list that is based on search volume. Honest, we’re not making this up… I don’t even like Lil Wayne that much.

  • A list for what we call “Top Movers”
