What Did People Search For In 2010?

Yahoo has released its annual “Year in Review” report, a dive into the top searches and search trends on the world’s second largest search engine.

Last year, Michael Jackson and Twilight topped Yahoo’s search rankings, while Megan Fox was the queen of Yahoo mobile searches. This year though, Michael Jackson and Megan Fox didn’t even make their respective lists. Replacing them instead were searches for the BP oil spill and, on mobile, the NFL.

The top 10 searches on Yahoo in 2010 include six celebrities (Miley Cyrus clocks in at number three), one gadget (the iPhone at number six), one TV show (American Idol at number nine, one sporting event (the World Cup at number two) and one manmade disaster (the BP oil spill at number one).

Mobile searches shared five of the same top 10, but also included the NFL (#1), Rihanna (#3), Sanda Bullock (#4), the NBA (#5) and the Winter Olympics (#9).
