AOL Search 2005 Popular Terms : Paris Hilton, Lottery & Thomas the Tank Engine

AOL Search has put out a rather extensive list of top AOL Search terms for 2005 at which includes Paris Hilton as the most searched celebrity in 2005, “lottery” as the most popular search term, iPod as the top gadget and Green Day as the most popular band. “Lottery” emerged as the most searched word in 2005, followed by “horoscopes” (no. 2) and “tattoos” (no. 3). New search terms that emerged in 2005 include the addictive puzzle “Sudoku,” the irregular minting of the new “Wisconsin Quarter” and the global music event “Live 8.” “Gas Prices” made the top news stories search, and in the strange reflection of American culture (including the Paris Hilton and Green Day rankings), WWE Pro Wrestlers John Cena & Eddie Guerrero made the Top Ten Athletes searched for on AOL Search.

“Millions of people search online through AOL Search for a wide spectrum of things, but there are those terms that are looked-up more frequently than others,” said Jim Riesenbach, senior vice president of AOL Search and Directional Media. “From news and people that grab attention to popular products and common queries, the most searched for topics online during 2005 are a reflection of what was top of mind or what people wanted to find more information about.”
