Sex Still Popular With Search Engines
As the ability to search massive amounts of data on the Internet becomes more and more apart of our day to day living, it’s easy to see what search patterns the majority of users follow.
There are a number of tools capable of providing a wealth of information about the types of searches conducted on any given basis. When you use these tools, especially the ones related to keyword-initiated search tracking, it’s easy to see that the majority of those conducting searches are very interested in sex and pornography.
The question about whether or not “sex” is still a top search term was asked to Danny Sullivan, who responded by saying it was, which is quite correct. Of course, this may not be the case if you go by Google’s Zeitgeist, which is an edited list of top searches, and is less likely to offend.
However, when you employ a tool like Wordtracker’s weekly keyword report, which contains an unfiltered look at keyword searches, you realize how predominant searches are for “sex” and other sexually related terms actually are. On Wordtracker’s site-based list, the keywords are edited so that sexually explicit words are not shown. However, in the weekly email report, the lists are not edited.
The following is the top ten searched keywords, compiled by Wordtracker from data collected by a number of metacrawlers:
