It wasn’t a person or event that took this years most searched spot via Yahoo, instead it was a device, the iPhone to be specific.
Yahoo revealed their top 10 years of 2011 during the company’s 10th annual “Year In Review” (yearinreview.yahoo.com). The company’s statistics are released every year to identify the top stories for more than 700 million monthly unique visitors across the company’s network and billions of online searchers.
The last product to take the top spot was Kazaa which took the honor way back in 2003.
In 2010 it was the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico (no surprise there).
Surprisingly missing was Steve Jobs, Charlie Sheen, President Obama and Tiger Woods.
Here’s YAHOO’s TOP-10 LIST BY SEARCH:
2. Casey Anthony
3. Kim Kardashian
4. Katy Perry
5. Jennifer Lopez
6. Lindsay Lohan
7. American Idol
8. Jennifer Aniston

10. Osama bin Laden
