Yahoo Reveals Top Search Queries of 2011
By on December 4th, 2011

iPhoneYahoo has revealed the most searched queries of 2011, and the list is as pointless as ever. Big news stories such as revolutions in the Middle East and floods in Thailand and US failed to find a place in the top ten, while celebrities continued to dominate public interest. As many as five out of the top ten queries were celebrities. However, somewhat surprisingly, iPhone managed to edge out everyone and land at the top of the table. This is the first time since 2002, when PlayStation 2 had topped the list, that a gadget managed to climb to the top.

The iPhone is followed by Casey Anthony, whose trial was extensively covered by the US media. Casey Anthony was accused of murdering her two year old child Caylee Anthony, and was found not guilty of murder or manslaughter. The entertainment industry occupied positions three through eight with Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Lindsay Lohan, American Idol, and Jennifer Aniston.

The Japan Earthquake and Osama Bin Laden, which were only two major news related queries to make the cut, form the bottom of the list. The Fukushima Earthquake that had a magnitude of magnitude of 6.6 on the Richter scale, caused a Tsunami and threatened to trigger a major Nuclear meltdown, while Osama Bin Laden’s death concluded a ten year old hunt for the world’s most notorious terrorist.
