Searching for a topic for a new blog? One approach is to look at what people are searching the web for and Yahoo! has helped out today by providing us all with a series of Top Ten Lists of 2006 in different categories. Of course there are only so many Britney Spears, WWE, Shakira and Jessica Simpson blogs that the world needs – but it does give you some hints at where the world we live in is currently at (warning – some will find the lists pretty depressing).
Also in the list is the 10 most searched for blogs of 2006 in Yahoo (with a few similar themes in it).
Thanks to everyone for emailing me about this list – Kris was the first.
PS: don’t forget that Google has a similar tool that updates weekly at Zeitgeist where as of writing this you’ll see that ‘Christmas’ terms are starting to climb the rankings (hope you’ve optimized your blog for Christmas!). No doubt they’ll release their 2006 summary Zeitgeist in the coming weeks.
