According to Yahoo's top 10 list of the most conducted searches in 2006, Britney Spears is back on top. The pop star had fallen from interest last year, but has hit No. 1 on the list five times in six years, according to Yahoo.

Yahoo has published the Top 10 Searches of 2006 lists, which include TV shows, movies, politicians and news stories. Among sports teams, the New York Yankees were No. 1, while the Boston Red Sox came in fourth. Spider-Man 3, due out in May 2007, was the most searched movie.

Britney is not the only "lady" to capture the interest of searchers. Shakira, Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, Beyonce Knowles, Pamela Anderson and Lindsay Lohan, were also among the top 10 most searchable terms.

WWE, the abbreviation for World Wresting Entertainment, was second. Hip-hop singer/dancer/O.C. star Chris Brown was eighth and the only man to make the overall top 10.
