Yahoo’s top 10 searches of the year are one of the many lists that are released at year’s end. A search engine’s top searches of the year is worth noting – not only now, but in the future, as well – to keep track of who we were interested in at a particular time in history. According to Yahoo!

At number 5, singer Selena Gomez is on the list. The next thing on the list is “Obamacare” – the nation’s unofficial name for the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s 2010 controversial health care law which is to take effect in 2014.
Number 7 on the list is actress Amanda Bynes who has had more than her share of headlines in the past year. Number 8 Jodi Arias who has been accused of murder. Number 9 is the third and last thing on the list of 10 – which is the iPhone.
