What do Hayden Panettiere, Al Gore and OJ Simpson have in common?



No, Hayden and Al weren’t secretly involved in OJ’s Las Vegas farrago. At least, I don’t think they were. Instead, the three occupy the top slots on this week’s Lycos 50 Biggest Movers and Shakers search queries chart.

Heroes star Hayden and Eco guru Al have seen searches for them rocket by 1600% apiece, thanks to the the US debut of the new series of Heroes, and Al’s appearance before the UN to discuss climate change. OJ? Well, you know why he’s of interest to the internetweb hordes.

Meanwhile, Lycos’ chart of the most popular search terms (those above are the fastest growing) sees Poker on top, followed by Vanessa Hudgens, Britney Spears, MySpace and Golf. If I can think of a post with all five of those in the headline, rest assured you’ll see it here very soon.
