Poker Top Search Term Third Straight Year

Poker poker poker poker poker. Is that what you were looking for? Information about poker? So are a lot of people, apparently.

For the third straight year, “poker” was the most-searched term on the ’net, according to the search engine Lycos. Rounding out the top five were “Paris Hilton,” “YouTube,” “Golf,” and “Sarah Palin” (you betcha).

Soon after comes 2003 American Idol runner-up “Clay Aiken” in 7th, by which search one might also find news about 2008 WSOP bracelet winner Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond, I suppose. And despite the fact that her online poker site was shut down in late ’06 and her marriage to poker player Rick Solomon was annulled early in ’08, “Pamela Anderson,” somehow remains popular on the intertubes, coming in 9th.

See the rest of Lycos’ top 50 search terms here.
