BBC.co.uk Homepage Searches

One of the most entertaining bits of the BBCi Homepage is the search facility and the 'people are currently searching for' section listing three things.

What is the most strange or non-BBC type thing you've seen appear in that list?

Half the time it seems to be something like an ITV or Sky programme or something equally daft that probably won't produce many results within BBCi.

At the time of writing its 'Cartoons', 'Harry Potter' and 'McFly', quite normal at the moment.

A couple of years ago lots of people were searching for "Bin Laden".

The BBC advertise the search as a general search facility not just a bbc.co.uk search.

It's based on google technology and is actually really good for searching the web - I use it all the time.

The yellow is quite nice!
I like the way they used to change the colour!
