Want to know the hottest search terms across the various search engines? Yahoo, Ask, and Google [Product Search] have listed the most popular items. Here's what Yahoo has as its top 10 searches:

1. Britney Spears 2. WWE 3. Barack Obama 4. Miley Cyrus 5. RuneScape 6. Jessica Alba 7. Naruto 8. Lindsay Lohan 9. Angelina Jolie 10. American Idol

And Ask.com's most popular list, on the contrary, doesn't seem that interesting (as some say):

1. Dictionary 2. MySpace 3. Google 4. YouTube 5. Facebook 6. Coupons 7. Cars 8. Craigslist 9. Online degrees 10. Credit score

Google's most popular searches are not available (yet?), but Google's most popular product searches are public:

1. nintendo wii 2. wii fit 3. ipod touch 4. xbox 360 5. nintendo ds 6. ipod nano 7. uggs 8. nikon d90 9. zune 10. digital picture frame
