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 number one spot on this year’s list. Britney does however reign supreme among the most-searched women of 2007, generating more searches than Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson and Anna Nicole Smith. Two newcomers to the Lycos 50 Top Search List of 2007 are Disney’s “High School Musical” star Vanessa Hudgens and “American Idol” contestant, Antonella Barba. While each gained a good deal of attention from their television face time in 2007, it was the individual nude photo scandals that drove search interest in the young starlets over the top. Despite the Hudgens’ debacle, the “High School Musical” juggernaut, combined with “Hannah Montana” mania helped to propel Disney to achieve all-star search status in 2007, making The Lycos 50 Year-End list for the first time ever.
