What were you all searching for in 2006?
One word: babes.
Several of the big search engines track the year’s most popular searches. Google has a peculiar methodology: It ranks searches by trends, not overall numbers. So it picks up on rising attractions like Bebo and MySpace (Nos. 1 and 2 for the year).
Yahoo and Microsoft go for quantity. Topping Yahoo’s list: Britney Spears. No. 2: Shakira (pictured). No. 4: Jessica Simpson. No. 5: Paris Hilton.
Microsoft’s No. 1 is Brazilian soccer superstar Ronaldinho. But Shakira, Paris and Britney are right behind him; Pamela Anderson is No. 7.
Need any more evidence that men waste more time on the Web than women?
