The Internet search engine Lycos has announced its annual list of the year's most popular search terms. Searches for Naruto placed seventh on the list, and searches for Pokémon placed ninth. This is the first time that Naruto has made the year-end Top 10, although it has frequently appeared on the weekly lists on Lycos. Pokémon, on the other hand, was also present in the 2006 annual Top 10, as the sixth-most-popular search, while in 2005, it was eighth, joined by Dragon Ball in the number five spot.
In addition, Naruto and Pokémon are the second and third most popular toy or game that Lycos users have searched for this holiday season. Naruto is the fourth most popular search term in 2007 on Yahoo!, one of the online search competitors to Lycos.
