I was surfing the net today, and came across one of those “top search” lists. I always wonder who puts them together, and whether or not the surveying is done in a full 24-hour period. How can you really tell that their research is valid? The top 3 searches today, apparently are year-round faves:
Paris Hilton (duh…)
WWE (wrestling, over almost anything else???)
Britney Spears (guess she’s still got it
The rankings didn’t totally surprise me. That Bush, Obama, Osama, or Hilary didn’t make the list DID surprise me.
Bill Gates wasn’t on it. Tyra Banks wasn’t on it. The Queen of England (and none of the other royals) were on it, either.
To be sure, a lot of people who search on the net are younger than I am, but a rock star, a celebu-tante, and some wrestlers are what pique the interest of the most people on the net?
Apparently, the top searches on Google for all of 2006 were: 1. paris hilton2. orlando bloom3. cancer4. podcasting5. hurricane katrina6. bankruptcy7. martina hingis8. autism9. 2006 nfl draft10. celebrity big brother 2006
I’m glad to see that in the top ten, at least Hurricane Katrina and podcasting made it into the rankings. And…autism?
One has to wonder.
