Britney Spears

Yahoo released its list of the top ten most searched items in 2008. Six of the top ten terms were people. A person was number one on the list of most searched terms. Guess who? Britney Spears, of course. She has been the most searched thing on Yahoo, seven out of the last eight years.

A closer look at the list reveals the searchers likely skew to a younger demographic. Terms also making it into the top ten: RuneScape, a massively multiple player fantasy game arguably aimed at a younger demographic, teen star sensation, Miley Cyrus, Naruto, a current Japanese anime and manga series (also the name of the adolescent lead character.)
