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
curiosities, interests, and what matters most to them. Unlike editorial
retrospectives or surveys, the rankings come from online users’ own search
behavior. Looking back, these lists truly sketch a society in motion: It's a
unique way to gauge social trends and interests in the year’s top stop stories,
compelling newsmakers, and viral fads.
Take a look back at a dozen years of Top 10s to see how the Web has grown — and
preoccupied readers in 2012.

Davis Love, the 2016 US Ryder Cup captain, was named Wednesday as an assistant to US captain Jay Haas for this year's Presidents Cup at Incheon, South Korea. The American squad has won its past five meetings with the Internationals team of non-European players and owns an 8-1-1 overall edge in the rivalry entering its first staging in Asia on October 8-11. Love was captain of the 2012 US Ryder Cup squad that suffered its greatest last-day collapse ever, allowing Europe to win the trophy at Medinah, but will have a chance at redemption in next year's Ryder Cup at Hazeltine. Love joins Fred Couples as an assistant to Haas.
