Dogpile, a meta-search engine operated by InfoSpace, Inc. (NASDAQ:INSP) that combines search results from all of the leading search engines, including Google, Yahoo! and Bing, today released its annual list of top search results for 2011.

“Based on an analysis of hundreds of millions of the most popular search queries submitted on this past year, we captured a glimpse of the interests of Americans,” said Stacy Ybarra, senior director of corporate communications at InfoSpace. “2011 presented itself as a year full of economic and employment concerns, celebrity captivation, notorious sex scandals, and beginnings and endings in global political events.”

Top Ten Overall Favorite Fetches:

1. Facebook

2. YouTube

3. NFL

4. American Idol

5. iPad

6. iPhone

7. Kim Kardashian

8. Justin Bieber

The queen of reality show TV, Kim Kardashian, topped the celebrity list on for the second year in a row. Her marriage, however short-lived, to athlete Kris Humphries was the most talked about American wedding of the year, second in popularity to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s much publicized and highly searched royal wedding in London last April.

Bieber Fever continued this year with pop/R&B singer Justin Bieber following closely behind Kim Kardashian. Bieber jumped five spots from number seven on the 2010 celebrity chart to number two in 2011. The Canadian teen heartthrob shared his fame with his own sweetheart, Selena Gomez, who placed in the top ten for celebrity searches the first time, a dramatic surge considering Gomez’s absence in the top 100 celebrity ranking last year.
