Yahoos Top Searches Of 2005

    December 15, 2005

Yahoo has released their look back at the top searches of 2005. Britney Spears appears to have had a great year (surprising to me).

A few comments:

  • Anna Kournikova is not a sports search! She barely ever was, and certainly no longer is. Quit it.
  • Dallas Cowboys: #1 team search. Why? So many teams with better years.
  • #2 product: flowers. #3: iPod. So save several hundred bucks and get the little lady something sweet.
  • How did Brad and Angelina outrank Hurricane Katrina?! People should be ashamed.
  • #4 movie search: Superman Returns. Nice.
  • The top movers by month list makes me ashamed.

What am I learning from all these end of the year lists? Searchers are shallow, celebrity obsessed and horny. I’m not surprised, but I don’t have to like it. (via the Yahoo Search Blog)
