2014’s Most Googled Celebs and Their PeekScores
Of the many lists they’ve compiled, the group we’re highlighting here is the cyberspace giant’s list of the year’s most searched for celebrities. Scandal and sensationalism seemed to drive most of the searches; with Oscars and/or good looks driving others. Good looks, truthfully, were likely a factor in most cases.
Here’s the full list:
1. Jennifer Lawrence
2. Kim Kardashian
3. Julie Gayet
4. Tracy Morgan
5. Rene Zellweger
6. Jared Leto
8. Matthew McConaughey
9. Amal Alamuddin
10. Donald Sterling
Ruling Google searches is not the same as ruling the Web, however. Their most searched for celeb, for example, proudly shuns social media, and as a result she leaves a slightly more modest digital footprint than you might expect.
Where we step in is in determining how much there is on the Web to find from and/or regarding these people when searching for them. Our PeekScore determines how present, influential, and active an individual is on the Web, and we’ve sorted these stars out according to theirs.
While there are many surprises below, the biggest surprise may remain who it was who was missing from Google’s list.
Clicking the items on the list below will lead you to the corresponding celeb’s PeekYou profile from where you can explore the best of what the Web holds of his or her life and career; including social pages, home pages, interviews, movies, TV shows, photos, and much more.
