The Late Whitney Houston Was The Year's Hottest Search
Her name is atop Google's most-searched lists in three categories — general searches, people and performing artists.
Houston got more attention than "Gangnam style," "Hurricane Sandy," the presidential election and even "Kate Middleton pictures released."
Google notes that:
"While it might not be surprising to see that tragic natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy ranked highly (#3 on the global trending list), it is reassuring to find searches like [donate to Sandy] spiking as well."
By the way, it appears many Two-Way readers enjoy year-end lists.
