News Knocks Sex Out Of Searches

from the incredible dept

There are some things I never thought possible. Would you believe that the word “sex” was not in the top ten list of words searched for on search engines? It seems people spent last week actually looking for news on the web rather than porn. Almost all the popular search terms had to do with last week’s tragic events in NY and DC. There were also a ton of searches on Nostradamus due to that ridiculous “prophecy” that went around by email. Yahoo also noticed that their stories about the attack were more popular than their usually ultra-popular “odd” stories.
