Quick RSS Subscription Links
I haven't looked at this in awhile, and with Christmas Eve upon us, I thought it would be fun to look at Yahoo's buzz index to see what people might be getting in their stockings this year or are curious about right now.

For those who don't know it, the Yahoo Buzz index keeps track of searches on their search engine and measures changes in the searches they get to determine who and what people are searching for information about.

Here are the overall Top Yahoo Searches for Christmas Eve:

How the Buzz Index Works

Movers are the search terms that have increased their buzz score over the previous day's score by the greatest percentage. Leaders are the search terms with the greatest buzz score for a given day.

For more detailed information, visit our FAQ.




Not surprisingly, Christmas leads the top searches of the day, while the next positions are top singers whose albums might be purchased as presents. Also not surpising, the post office web site is falling in interest because it is now too late to mail things to arrive by Chrismas, but, it still makes the top 20 searches because procrastination is still a popular American pastime. On fact, I should be wrapping presents right now!

The movers column is more interesting because it often gives you new people to find out about like Gavin Rossdale, the lead singer of the Band Bush.
