2012 YEAR IN REVIEW
The standout news & pop obsessions gleaned from your search habits
Decade of top searches
2001, Yahoo! has dipped into billions of searches to uncover our audience's

unique way to gauge social trends and interests in the year’s top stop stories,
compelling newsmakers, and viral fads.
