Search Keywords – What is Hot?

Filed under: Internet,Technology; Author: Les Bain; Posted: February 19, 2008 at 4:08 pm;

Wordtracker reports on what keywords people are putting into search. I know this is just a sample, but I looked at the top 100 search key phrases from the last 48 hours.

So what are people searching on?

  • 49 were searching for sexually oriented content. Some key phrases are problematic. I included Carmen Electra in this list. I did not include Madonna or Britney Spears.
  • 24 were searching for music or musicians. I included Queen, Beatles, Madonna, and Britney Spears in this category.
  • 12 were searching for a popular website like google, ebay, yahoo, myspace, facebook, or hotmail.
  • 7 were searching for information on video or computer games.
  • 8 were searching for a miscellaneous set of terms including “fun presidential facts”. I counted “Obama girl” here, but it might fit in the first category.

I have looked at the reports at various times, and the percentages stay pretty consistent. The top 500 terms is almost always 50% sexually oriented. It is a tribute to the Internet searchers that they can find 250 search keywords and key phrases to search for sexual content.
