I like to track search trends because it’s so freaking cool to see how what’s on our collective minds. Today, you should expect Hillary to dominate blogs, tweets, and searches.

Also, it’s official that we’re in a recession.

Looks like 2008, even with 1 more month, has been one helluva year.

So what were we searching on Yahoo? Luckily there’s Yahoo Buzz: A Year in Review 2008. (Sent by my Facebook friend Leah…We’re still sorting out how we’re friends lol!)

It’s interesting that under the news section Election 2008 was 3rd compared to the term “Hurricanes.” One would think Election 2008 would be the most popular term this year, but then again we had some nasty storms. Plus most people didn’t use the term Election 2008 to feed their political cravings.

And perhaps the saddest part of the page is the farewell section. The untimely death of Heath Ledger boosted his search term to the top. It’s just a shame that so many untimely deaths are on that list; such as Isaac Hayes, Bernie Mac, George Carlin, Brad Renfro and Tim Russert.

UPDATE/// TechCrunch, in a similar post, shows last years list:

  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

Wow….lots of repeats///
