The ABCs of Search – December 2008Best Buy Beats Bebo, Obama Still Strong

December’s ABCs of Search contains few surprises.   President-elect Barack Obama continues a strong showing, but still can’t take the “B” slot.  Last month’s winner Bebo yielded to Best Buy as the holiday season swung into full force.  Other retailers making the list are the ever-present Amazon and eBay, joined by December newcomers Kohls, Lowes and Sears.

We’re also introducing the Names of Search feature this month.  As with the ABCs of Search, Names is created on a vanilla PC install of a logged out Google account in Silver Beacon Marketing’s suburban D.C. offices.
