Since 2010, we’ve compiled our list of “The 50 Most Popular Women On The Web (According To Google)” — and in that short time, it has become the definitive end-of-year list for determining which women racked up the most search results and earned the title “Queen of the Internet.”
As in previous years, many of the results surprised us… this year, even the top one. And the list is sure to spark debate. We welcome it. But to avoid debate on our methodology, we are once again happy to disclose how we came to our findings. We also encourage you to look back at the results for 2011 and 2010 to see how the list has changed.
