    Last night I watched a few of this week’s episodes of Loaded on CNET TV where Natali Del Conte – amongst others – presented the Top 10 Searches for 2008 of Yahoo and also Google. The funny thing is that there is quite a big difference in this list. Yahoo’s list which in its entirety can be found here looks like this…

    1. Britney Spears
    2. WWE
    3. Barack Obama
    4. Miley Cyrus
    5. RuneScape
    6. Jessica Alba
    7. Naruto
    8. Lindsay Lohan
    9. Angelina Jolie
    10. American Idol

    Google has not released its 2008 Zeitgeist yet but the fastest-rising search terms of 2008 are:

    1. obama
    2. facebook
    3. att
    4. iphone
    5. youtube
    6. fox news
    7. palin
    8. beijing 2008
    9. david cook
    10. surf the channel

    As you can easily see there is quite a big difference between those two lists. It’s really interesting that Britney Spears is on top of the list at Yahoo. I mean isn’t that over somehow? Also who still uses Yahoo search? I have maybe used it once or twice in the last two years when I didn’t get appropriate results from Google but obviously Yahoo wasn’t any better. Well, from just looking at the list however you can presume what kind of people use it regularly…

    Edit: Here’s a short excerpt from the show mentioned above…
