To develop the annual Yahoo retrospective, editors analyze Yahoo Search queries based on a number of factors, including the volume and growth of previous periods, in order to identify which themes and trends dominate the news. Individuals and their search queries, however, remain anonymous. This list is constructed without navigation search – that is, searches where the intention is clearly to navigate to a site rather than discovering information.
