Google might dominate the market when it comes to search engines, but Bing isn’t that far behind.
Microsoft rolled out the search engine in 2010, sparking rumors that it might accomplish the impossible—replacing Google.
Google announced their most popular searches of 2011, with Kim Kardashian topping the list. So what did Bing users search for most? Justin Bieber, no surprise there. I guess we know the preferred search engine of Beliebers. Kim came in second on Bing.
Rebecca Black had the most searched for viral video on Bing. Over on Google, Black was the fastest rising celebrity searched for on Google. And probably the fastest declining.
Most Searched News Story on Bing was Casey Anthony, who was the fourth fastest rising on Google.
Maria Sharapova was Most Searched Athlete on Bing. On Google, the Mayweather vs. Ortiz boxing match was the Fastest Rising in Sports.
Other highlights—Jennifer Lopez shot to the 5th most searched for person on Bing. Kate Middleton came in at #12, while Pippa came in at #21. I’m guessing Pippa’s butt wasn’t far behind. Selena Gomez went from #50 in 2010 to #11 in 2011. Dating Bieber has it’s perks.
Jennifer Aniston, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Megan Fox, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus all made the Top 10 most searched for people on Bing.
Among the most searched for TV Shows included American Idol, at #1, along with Dancing With the Stars and Glee, and of course, Jersey Shore.
