What a difference a search engine makes. On Bing’s year-end list, Beyonce earned top honors for most searched celebrity in 2013. On Yahoo!, she doesn’t even rank in the Top 10. Taking not only the No. 1 slot as top-searched female celebrity but also top Yahoo search term overall is Miley Cyrus. Not at all surprising given all her headline-grabbing antics this year.
Cyrus beat out fellow celebrities for Yahoo!’s top honor. Kim Kardashian (#2), Kate Upton (#3) and Selena Gomez (#5) all just fell short. Gotta hand it to Kardashian. Regardless of what search engine, she’s near the top. She also landed the runner-up slot on Bing’s list, while Miley ranked at No. 9. Again I ask, who and why are people searching for Kimmy K?
Other top search terms in 2013 include Minecraft (#4), Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) (#6), Amanda Bynes (#7), Jodi Arias (#8), iPhone 5 (#9) and Justin Bieber (#10). Check out other Top 10 year-end lists from Yahoo! below.
