Hitwise: Americans are lonely, horny gambling addicts

HItwise released their 2006 search statistics today and, all things being equal, odds are you're a socially stultified nambypants who cruises MySpace, gets your schadenfreude jollies from American Idol, shops at Victoria's Secret and repeats "Vegas baby, Vegas" with so much zeal you'd think you were the only one to ever see Swingers.

According to Hitwise, the overall search term last year was myspace (0.63% share), followed by myspace.com, ebay, yahoo, mapquest, www.myspace.com, yahoo.com, my space, myspace layouts, and lyrics. Oh yeah, I forgot. You don't know how to use URLs either.

I assume these searches have all been scrubbed of what you're really searching for.

The top search terms among entertainment Web sites:

  1. imdb
  2. netflix
  3. movies
  4. blockbuster
  5. fandango
  6. harry potter
  7. netflix.com
  8. movie times
  9. hollywood video
  10. regal cinema

Destination category:

  1. las vegas (also #5 in travel category)
  2. six flags
  3. walt disney world
  4. universal studios
  5. hawaii
  6. cedar point
  7. grand canyon
  8. wisconsin dells
  9. dollywood (really??)
  10. yellowstone national park

In the lifestyle category, old navy, hollister and vicki's secret took the top spots.
