Google and Yahoo Users Search for the Same Things

Yesterday Yahoo annouced its top searches for 2007 lists and today Google announced their fastest growing search list. This list is basically compiled of searches that didn't exist last year and have gained the most momentum in 2007. To no surprise the list is celebrity and technology focused but what surprised me is the amount of navigational searches people are running. YouTube, TMZ, MySpace, and Facebook are wall websites and if you add the .com to it you'll go to the first result. Are we getting lazier as people? or are we just becoming more dependent upon search engines? I think keyboards should have a .com button but maybe that's just me. Who uses that windows button anyway?

(2) Thoughts on Google and Yahoo Users Search for the Same Things

It's amazing how popular the iphone is! It always pays to keep up with current trends when trying to make your website popular. I use these popular search terms to generate articles using Artemis pro, works pretty well.

Oh and I use the windows key! Mainly only to press windows key + R to get the run command up! I rarely use the sub menu button though!

Keep up the good work, I really enjoyed reading your blog!

Haha I didn't even know about that windows key trick, thanks Simon!

I think you are right on point with the need to keep on top of the trends in your industry. No matter what sector you are in, if you don't keep up, you'll get left in the dust in this day in age.
