Are Googlers Smarter than Yahooers?

As a follow-up to my previous post, I checked to see what the Top Ten Searches were on Google this year. Surprisingly, the number one search wasn't "Britney Spears." In fact the list is downright respectable and a bit techy. In fact, I'm not even sure what #1 actually is. "Bebo?" I had to look it up and apparently it's a social networking site where you can share multimedia stuff. I'm not sure why you wouldn't just type into a browser to find it, but I guess if you'd only heard the name you might not know how to spell it.

Anyway does the list below mean that people who use Google are older and/or smarter than the people using Yahoo? There's no Lindsey Lohan or Beyonce, there's mininova and radioblog. It's tools over people. Odd. Wonder what's going on there.

Anyway, here's the list: Searches in 2006

1. bebo

2. myspace
3. world cup
4. metacafe
5. radioblog
6. wikipedia
7. video
8. rebelde
9. mininova
10. wiki
