Although a little earlier than usually done by other search engines, Bing has released its top trending topics for 2009. “Michael Jackson” was the number most search keywords although the most search personality was “Perez Hilton.”The list was created based on the analysis of billions of searches against those that were searched using Bing. Aside from MJ, here are the other keywords that made it to the Top Trending Topics in Bing in 2009:
1) Michael Jackson
3) Swine Flu
4) Stock Market
5) Farrah Fawcett
6) Patrick Swayze
7) Cash for Clunkers
8) Jon and Kate Gosselin
9) Billy Mays
10) Jaycee Dugard
Bing also got a lot of searches for top online sites such as Facebook, MSN, YouTube and Craiglist. It could mean that there are more new users who want to find out what’s the fuzz is all about Facebook and these other sites.
For complex seaches, Bing got a lot of them as well, particularly those queries seeking help for specific matters such as deciding what MP3 to buy as well as travel-related searches.
Bing is also releasing it’s “Most Popular Searches in 2009”. This is different from the Top Trending Topics as this list pertains to celebrities. Like I said, Perez Hilton tops this list followed by Robert “Edward Cullen” Pattinson and Maegan Fox.
