I doubt you got up this morning and found yourself wondering, “gee, who are the most Googled women in the world this year?” But that’s just the thing about lists like this: you didn’t know you cared until you saw the headline.
Now, let me just be up front about one important thing before you get too far along: Kate Upton is not on in. I don’t know how it is possible, since she’s popped up just about everywhere you looked on the internet this year (including right here on this site again and again), and regular visitors were probably expecting to see her here. But the facts are the facts: when you search for “Kate Upton” on the Googles, only 31,400,000 results come up. So she missed the cut for the top 50 by a whopping 13,000,000 results.
And that reminds me of another thing you should know heading into the list: yes, it’s true, technically this isn’t a list of the “most Googled” women in the world. It’s actually a list of the women with the biggest presence on the internet as measured by Google search results. But what can I say? “Women with the biggest presence on the internet as measured by Google search results” is a dumb name for a list. And anyway, I doubt you really care. You are probably just interested to see what women are popular on the internet these days. And this list will most certainly tell you that.
So, ready to get started? Great. Let’s get to it.
