Billions of search terms are entered each day as people around the globe search the internet for what they want to find. In 2011, what was the top search term? Well, the answer is actually quite lame.

For some reason, “Facebook” was the top search term for 2011. Why would you search the term “Facebook”? That makes no sense. Just go to Facebook.com if that’s what you are looking for. “Facebook Login” was the third most searched term of 2011, while “Facebook.com” was number five and “www.Facebook.com” was number eight.

This just goes to prove that the average internet user has no idea what he or she is doing. Yeah, we all love Facebook but it’s not exactly hard to find.

    Perhaps the users only typed facebook in the address bar in the browser and pressed Enter instead of Ctrl+Enter – which in turn “searches” whatever is typed. This might have been a factor in higher search rating
