Top Ten Yahoo Searches In 2010

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - This year, online activity on Yahoo! was dominated by the public's transfixion with the BP oil spill, pop culture's leading ladies, gadgets starting with "I," and a newfound fascination with soccer. The BP oil spill was the top Yahoo! search for 2010. People turned to the Web to watch the live feed of the oil leak, search for answers to the spill's impact, and get details. On a lighter note, soccer turned out to be a burning topic for fans and newbies alike.

Search trends showed excitement around the players and teams throughout the World Cup tournament. Many consumers asked questions about the rules of soccer, and some even logged on to identify the annoying sounds coming through their televisions (think vuvuzela horns).

The Year in Review Top 10 lists also record the year's pop culture trends and guilty pleasures. What's notable is who has dropped in the mix: Music artist Britney Spears dominated the Year in Review Top 10 lists in the past decade but dropped from her No. 1 spot to No. 5 in 2009, and this year she came in at No. 10. Plenty of rising starlets have swarmed in to take her place, including teen sensation Miley Cyrus, the unpredictable music artist Lady Gaga, and reality TV star and mogul Kim Kardashian.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Feel like you have to keep swatting bugs away when you've been walking outside this week? What you might be calling gnats, are really blue ash aphids. And right now they are more active than ever, because it's mating season. KHQ met a couple who noticed the blue ash aphids right when they started their walk in the park.
