Janet Jackson’s near-baring of her breast at the Super Bowl might be the most searched event in the history of the Internet, search site Lycos said.
Meanwhile, a paid streaker was a success for the dot-com company he advertised for, and movie studios earned big spikes in traffic for films they pitched.
Lycos said that Jackson and searches related to the Super Bowl halftime show the day after the big game amounted to 80 times more searches than did the usual No. 1 celebrity search, Britney Spears. In fact, Jackson and halftime searches that day outscored even the largest one-day total for terrorist-related searches on and after September 11, 2001.
I know my site saw a big gain in unique hits, as did Blogcritics.
