Bing has revealed its top searched terms for 2011, and believe it or not, Justin Bieber takes top prize. Then, in the number two position, it’s Kim Kardashian of course. You know, the stuff people need information about.

Bing is the “decision engine,” and clearly people had a lot of decisions to make about Bieber and Kardashian.

“From rising stars and weddings to intense trials and natural disasters, Bing has captured history through the searches that mark the year’s most important people, places and moments in time,” a spokesperson for Bing tells WebProNews.

So here’s that list of most searched people:

1. Justin Bieber
2. Kim Kardashian
3. Jennifer Aniston
4. Lindsay Loahan
5. Jennifer Lopez
6. Britney Spears
7. Katy Perry
8. Megan Fox
9. Lady Gaga
10. Miley Cyrus

The most searched consumer electronics were:

1. Xbox and Kinect
2. Kindle
3. Playstation
4. iPhone 5
5. iPad
6. Wii
7. iPad 2
8. Nook
9. Windows Phone 7
10. Macbook Pro

No Android devices. I wonder if the results were different for Google searches.

The top three news stories were:

1. Casey Anthongy Trial
2. Osama bin Laden Death
3. Hurricane Irene

Top Celebrity Events:

1. Royal Wedding
2. Final “Harry Potter”
3. Kim Kardashian Wedding

Top Finance Quotes:

1. Real estate agents
2. Cheap
3. Coupons

Bing looks at a few more vertical trends in this blog post.

We’re looking forward to seeing how Google’s year-end list stacks up to Bing’s, given its much larger market share, as it would represent a better picture of what people are truly searching for. I’m guessing Bieber and Kardashian are still pretty high up on the list.
