Most Popular Search Engine

Thursday, January 12th, 2006

Internet search engines are programs designed to help users find web pages related to a specific search term. By indexing the full text of web documents, search engines are able to collect information and generate results for almost any query, making them ever an more popular resource. Around 2001, the Google search emerged quickly becoming one of the most popular search engines.

Nielsen/NetRatings, a global leader in market research, reported that the volume of Internet search queries grew to more than 5,100,000,000, yes 5.1 billion, in the month of October 2005 alone. Google has maintained its leader position as the most popular search engine with nearly half of all searches, or 48 percent, by serving more than 2.4 billion queries.

The four most popular search players, Google, Yahoo!, MSN and AOL have maintained the same rankings in the past half year very little change in market share.


Most Popular Dog Breed

Thursday, January 12th, 2006

The most popular dog breed by registered ownership in both the United States and the United Kingdom is the Labrador Retriever, thought of as a friendly and intelligent companion.

The Golden Retriever and German Sheppard come in as the second and third most popular dog breeds. The most popular breeds are highly intelligent medium to large sized dogs.

The Labrador Retriever is believed to have come from Newfoundland where fishermen recognized the breed’s quick retrieving and swimming skills.

As much as we love this popular dog breed, if you are looking to pick up your own pet, think twice about a purebred and remember that between six and eight million dogs and cats enter U.S. shelters every year, and three to four million of these animals are euthanized because there are not enough homes for them.
