A little ahead of schedule, Yahoo
have released their lists of items most often searched for in 2010. Google hasn't released their list but you can see popular searches using their Insights

Blackhat Search Engine Optimization Techniques.
Through the use of a DMCA
(Digital Millennium Copyright Act) complaint, you can have competing web sites thrown out of Yahoo's search index. If you file a DMCA report against a site, Yahoo will quickly remove the "offending" site, leaving no trace of the site in its index. This has led to a rise in so-called "Blackhat SEO
," wherein one seeks to become the leading search result not by improving one's own site, but by having competing sites removed through the DMCA.

What's hot in technogeekery?
Match your predictions with Yahoo's ongoing search stats using $10,000 fake dollars as investment capital. Is this how Yahoo is going to steal Google's mindshare - or just another pointless thing to do with search engines

Have a business? Want its site listed on Yahoo? From this point on, you have to use Yahoo! Express
, which means you have to pay $299
for them to just consider
your site. Does this diminish the validity of Yahoo's listings, or is this just the inevitable result of the dot-com decline?

Where are search engines headed?
Paid inclusion seems to be an increasingly popular strategy among search engines and directories. In addition to Yahoo and the ones listed in the article, Go.com
have recently implemented paid inclusion systems. Should we expect even more search engines to head in this direction? Does this worry anyone?
