Poker Top Search

Written by Tom Somach in Poker News

For those who may think interest in the game of poker has peaked and is now on the wane, think again.

The game has never been more popular, at least according to those who search the Internet for information about poker.

Internet search engine Lycos ( has announced what words and phrases were the most searched for in 2007 and poker once again tops the list.

For the second year in a row, the word or phrase most often entered into the Lycos search engine by Internet-users worldwide was “poker,” the Waltham, Massachusetts-based company announced in a news release.

The time period surveyed is from Jan. 1, 2007 through Dec. 1, 2007, the company said.

According to the Lycos results, “poker” was the most frequently entered search term this year, followed by “MySpace” at No. 2, “Britney Spears” at No. 3, “Paris Hilton” at No. 4 and “golf” at No. 5.

Rounding out the Top Ten most popular searches on Lycos for 2007 were “YouTube” at No. 6, “Naruto” at No. 7, “Disney” at No. 8, “Pokemon” at No. 9 and “WWE” at No. 10.

So why is poker such a popular search engine request?

According to the Lycos news release: “For the second year in a row, poker draws the top spot, generating more search activity with Lycos users in 2007 than any other search term.

“Propelled by the continued success of the World Poker Tour and numerous televised celebrity poker tournaments, online interest in poker dominates Lycos’s search logs week after week.

“Even the headline-grabbing tabloid antics of Britney Spears were unable to topple poker from the No. 1 spot on this year’s list.”
