Yahoo has released its top 10 most popular search terms for the year, in addition to its top news stories and a number of other “most popular” top 10 lists for the site in 2016.
According to Yahoo, the most searched term for 2016 was “2016 Election,” with president-elect “Donald Trump” following in the No. 2 spot. Hillary Clinton barely made the list, edging in at No. 10. The No. 3 spot went to video game Roblox.
Half of Yahoo’s top 10 most popular search terms were celebrities: Gwen Stefani, Megyn Kelly, Jodi Sweetin (of “Full House” & “Fuller House” fame) and two Kardashians.
Yahoo also ranked its top 10 most popular news stories — arguably one of the most depressing lists possible.
The site also curated the top 10 celebrity searches, with Gwen Stefani at the top of the list; top sports stories, which was made up mostly of Olympic-related headlines; and the following list of top companies as determined by Yahoo Finance’s most-read stories.
