What We Search On: Google & Yahoo Reveal Their 2007 List of Top Searches, And We Learn...?

Marissa Mayer from Google was on the Today Show to announce the top Google searches of 2007. Yahoo revealed their list as well. Why do they not share a single common search term? More importantly, what the hell is a "Rune Scape" or a "Naruto"? I'll have to do a search. Google's seems a little more realistic (except for excluding Britney!) with the all lowercase look. Who knows.

Here are the lists:

Google's 2007 Top 10 Queries

  1. iphone
  2. webkinz
  3. tmz
  4. transformers
  5. youtube
  6. club penguin
  7. myspace
  8. heroes
  9. facebook
  10. anna nicole smith

Yahoo's 2007 Top 10 Queries

  1. Britney Spears
  2. WWE
  3. Paris Hilton
  4. Naruto
  5. Beyonce
  6. Lindsay Lohan
  7. Rune Scape
  8. Fantasy Football
  9. Fergie
  10. Jessica Alba

It's ironic that the #1 2007 Google search was iPhone and they are feverishly working on a Google phone as we speak. Where will the GooglePhone rank next year?

A Runescape is a huge online game that both my older kids play incessantly.
