WEB PORTAL Yahoo has revealed the hottest search words and phrases that hit Microsoft's Yahoo branded servers over the last year.

According to the firm "royal baby" was a popular phrase, as were "twerking", "Candy Crush" and "Gareth Bale".

The firm has published its list of searches along with a list of most frequently asked questions.

The lists reveal what is so good about the internet, it is full of answers to questions people are too embarrassed to ask.

Step up then those people who wanted to know how old Cher is, and sit down those who polled the internet on how to make money.

Yahoo has broken out a range of top ten lists, including a list of the top ten searched for technology items. At the top of this table is the Apple iPhone. Below that is an Amazon Kindle, then a Samsung Galaxy, followed by an iPad chaser.

You have to wait until places five and six to see a games machine, and in those slots you will find the Sony Playstation 4 (PS4) and Microsoft Xbox One, respectively.

The second most frequently asked question among Yahoo users is "What is my IP address?", and the first is, "When do the clocks change?".

The most searched for television show is Big Brother, which suggests something about Yahoo users, and the most regularly searched for people are multi-million pound ball-kicker Gareth Bale and Miley Cyrus, which we thought was a water-borne virus. µ
