      Oh, yay!  None of which have I any interest in writing about....I would rather see  a longer list, perhaps the top 50 or 100.  Then, I might find something with which I could connect.
      I mean, 4 of those were global news and of worldwide interest: I make note of the news, and pay attention, but those are not topics I care to write about;  3 are for commercial products, and I don't give a rat's A$$ about any those mentioned, and the rest, I never heard of.  I'm sorry for the families in the loss the two actors, but they were not on shows I watched, so I didn't know who they were at all/never heard of them, until the news item hit.
      I wish "the Big G" would more greatly 'reward' articles that educate about serious issues..such as the corruption in our government and insurance industries, as well as the corporate gluttony and loss of jobs overseas.
      THAT is what folks need to focus upon, and not all that shallow crap about toys, gossip stupid fads and sit-coms.

      **end rant**

          Right--I get that's what people are searching.  I just wish, as I said, that they'd supply a longer list--like top 100 .. I don't know if that would show any more intelligent and less-shallow searches or not.
          I guess, at this point in my life, I'm just disgusted with humanity for focusing on shallow, unimportant sh** ,..  LOL

            Doubt that you really want to write on any of the top 50.  Or even top 100 - they will already have 5,247,489,472,895,821,903 articles written on each one.

              Exactomundo!  I'm afraid you're right, there.  In such a world, how do you manage "unique?"  Bah!

    The most searched question was, 'what is twerking'?    lol  - 
    The most searched how-to question was  'how to tie a tie'.

    I admit to being one of those searching the first question!

      LOL  My first reaction was, "WTF is 'twerking?'  but my second reaction was not giving a sh** enough about some stupid new fad to look it up... wink
