There was a whole lot of love going around in 2011 when it comes to celebrities. Whether it was widely-watched weddings or just relationships that we all love to follow, there was no shortage of news and couple-based headlines this year.

But among all of the couples out there, one stands out as the “happiest” according to a web-scouring search done exclusively for Celebuzz by Zeta Interactive, a NY based full service digital marketing agency. After looking at every little bit of information — from stories to searches to comments —  the web has to offer, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have officially been named the Happiest Couple of 2011! So how’d they come to that conclusion?

According to Zeta Interactive:

When it comes to happiness, or the perception of happiness, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom took the buzz in 2011. The couple received more positive buzz than any other celebrity couple this past year at 92% positive, and the words and phrases used most commonly to describe the couple online were “love,” “happiness,” “true love” and “marriage.”

Al DiGuido, the CEO of Zeta, goes even further, explaining to Celebuzz that “one of the biggest reasons that this celebrity couple’s buzz was so positive was the fact that they are seen as a true and honest love story … Proof of this is evident in the words and phrases that were used most commonly to describe Khloe and Lamar online, as “true love,” “happiness” and “marriage” dominated their cluster words.

And while Khloe and Lamar are the happiest couple of the year, they’re unfortunately not the most buzzed about one. That honor goes to Prince William and Kate Middleton, who married in April while millions across the world watched as the Royal Wedding dominated the airwaves.

DiGuido explains:

The tremendous amount of buzz generated by the royal wedding is a  perfect example of how influential social media and the internet are when it comes to helping people develop opinions on pop culture  topics. The entire world saw a fairytale play out right in front of them on their computers, and weighed in with comments, feedback and opinions in real-time as the story played out. Their ranking as the best buzzed celebrity couple of the year illustrates that the volume of people talking about Kate Middleton and Prince William was unlike anything we have seen before in the entertainment and celebrity category.

For what it’s worth, the Royal Wedding was Celebuzz’s biggest day ever — so we agree!
