Most searched terms in 2008

Yahoo just published its top 10 of the most searched words in the search engine during the year 2008.

Yahoo is mainly used in USA, so the research top 10 is very American. Google has won the war in a large part of the word (sadly, monopoles are never good). :-(


The singer Britney Spears takes the first place.

In second place we find the wrestling with the term WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) a show totally unknown outside USA. And Barack Obama the future president completes the podium.
