The Year in Search

Yahoo! has released its Year in Review, which looks back on what people were searching for this year with a slew of fun, intriguing lists. What were parents and kids typing into search boxes this year? Glee (#4), the iPad (#3) and Silly Bandz (#9) all hit the Top Obsessions list in 2010. Pregnancy was the #1 most-searched-for health condition; the pee barely has time to dry on the stick before moms-to-be are obsessing over early signs of pregnancy. Parents struggled once again this with the timeless conundrum of What’s for dinner? Chicken and Crockpot came in at #1 and #2 respectively for on the top recipes list. Tweens and teens clearly did a lot of searching this year. Miley Cyrus (#3), Justin Bieber (#8) and Britney Spears (#10) made the list for top searches overall.
