What a sad testament to society. Those top searches are just depressing. Doesn't anybody care about anything outside of entertainment anymore?

That's mighty embarrassing. Checking the Alexa data for the #2 site for 'Britney Spears' doesn't reflect this however. Or maybe that just shows what a measly share of all searches Yahoo caters for.

I believe Yahoo filtered out the navigational type searches, otherwise that would be top 8 of the 10!

Filtering out the navigational searches...

It would be a bit embarrassing to see Google in their top 10.

Checking the Alexa data for any site is a complete waste of time, this shows nothing but the ones that visited with the alexa toolbar downloaded.

When service pack 2 came out a year ago it threw a warning this was spyware so 99.9999% of the world deleted it the remaining .0001 use it to help get their site lower in the numbers.

I deleted it a year ago

They should have given us the data in a zip file, sorted by userid ;)

I wonder how much Britney's recent lack of underwear helped propel her to the top...

No question, the internet is serving the function that TV once did, which served the function a campfire once did. Why else would so many flock to a hockey fight video? hehe. With IPTV around the corner...

I bet that is the only reason people were searching for her last week. Her career seems to be on hold right now.

Imagine the amount of bandwidth that was used last week for those pictures.

I worked on a project with a several hundred newspapers and got to watch what people did and did not read. It changed my life. There were thousands of news articles that NO ONE clicked on. Zero clicks.

And, like here, nothing got a response like death, especially death of any kind of name (I was often saying, "Who?") in entertainment.

Top 10 News Story Searches on Yahoo! for 2006, thus far:
1 Steve Irwin death
2 Anna Nicole's son dies
3 Iraq
4 Israel and Lebanon
5 U.S. elections  
6 Fidel Castro stroke
7 North Korea nuke
8 JonBenet confession
9 Saddam Hussein trial
10 Danish cartoon

The stats just show how obsessed some people are with celebrities. Britney didn't even release a record this year.

See my previous comments re: Britney Spears being the #1 search and the reasoning behind that ;)

Yeah that is the top 10 searches they wanted to show. There is no way that is the actual top 10.

They had to take all the words referring to female parts out. Still it's really sad to see this stuff.

So is the value of the internet measured by the choice of Britney's undergarments?

My topic is so removed from this stuff, I'm depressed.

When is Britney Spears gonna leave the charts for good? It's so hard to beleive that she'd be leading the search for the past several years...

I wonder if Britney Spears gets severely magnified by webmasters using that as a test phrase for bots, etc. I know I must've used her name as a query string for thousands of queries in 2006 as a result of when she was really popular years back.

Sad people; and what happened to "Kermit Nude Free Pics"?
Although personally I'd go with a Google image search for Yi Neng Jing 40!

Britney did have a pretty big year - she was a train wreck for the first half of the year, then had another baby, filed for divorce, and stopped wearing panties. I read on a credible news source (read: celebrity gossip site) that many of the sites with the photos of her (you know) were all crashing due to the massive traffic. I hear they still love her in Japan too.

The scene when Tom Cruise got squirted in the face was enjoyable for me. I hope they come out with more of this type of material.
