Bing, Microsoft’s decision engine, has just released a list of 2010’s most popular search trends on Bing.com.
In 2009, Bing.com saw Michael Jackson in the #1 slot, falling to #11 this year, along with topical items like Swine Flu and Stock Market also in the top 10. This year, however, the tables have turned with 2010 reflecting the growing appetite for celebrity news.
This year’s #1 searched for topic on Bing.com was Kim Kardashian, who won top searched in a landslide – with 20% more searches than #2 Sandra Bullock. The only repeat top 10 searched item was Kate Gosselin (last year’s #8) – although this year she appeared alone – minus Jon. The struggling economy is also reflected in this year’s top searches, with discount retailer Wal-Mart and the topic “free” appearing in the top 10.
