Most searched terms on FirstGov

I mentioned yesterday the most searched terms on Yahoo's search engine and the good folks over at FirstGov were good enough to send me the list of the most searched terms on the government's portal.

Here are the top 25... and guess what, Britney doesn't make the list, thank goodness:

25. holidays
24. labor
23. safety
22. commerce
21. trade
20. funding
19. visas
18. laws
17. green card
16. homeland security
15. loans
14. training
13. housing
12. careers
11. forms
10. credit
9. weather
8. auctions
7. social security
6. jobs
5. employment
4. passports
3. immigration
2. grants

And the most searched term: passport

Technically, the list isn't for the first year. It represents what FirstGov has seen from March through November, but it gives us a sense.
