Google Trends and Insights gets a lot of attention when it comes to measuring searches, and so does measurement firm comScore.

But the number 2 and 3 search engines also provide insight into hot searches. So, let's take a look at Microsoft's xRank and Yahoo's Buzz Index to see what's hot in their user searches this week too.
