Tag Results: Yahoo
One of the more delightful (and modern) year-end traditions is checking out what facets of culture have a vice-grip on the general public. With 2012 winding down, big name search engines are releasing their most-searched phrases of the year. Entries run the gamut of pop culture and beyond, from the presidential election, to New York Knicks (and now Houston Rockets) wunderkid Jeremy Lin, and even the union of the entertainment world’s most notorious egomaniacs, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Unsurprisingly, many turned to the interwebs to scope out vacation spots. What was unforeseen was how certain destinations would rank, and which cities – here in the United States and across the globe – would rise to the top.
Chicago was ranked Yahoo’s second most-searched city of the year, making it once again the “Second City.” Yahoo wasn’t the only mega-site to point out Chicago’s blossoming popularity; it was the second most-searched for U.S. city in Google Maps as well. Chi-Town edged out London and New York, and was second only to Las Vegas. Sin City is a perpetual favorite of thrill-seeking tourists, and often heads most year-end lists.
