For all the high-minded talk about the Internet as a tool for world trade and a force for democracy, the Web’s main role in daily lives is as the modern equivalent of the girlie magazine, according to this Forbes column. The keyword research tool WordTracker says the names of Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and the Simpson sisters are the most-searched words on the Web these days, along with queries for video game cheats, music lyrics, movie information and sex acts. Nearly as sad as the porn hunters are the lost souls: “Google” is an oft-searched term, meaning people don’t know the difference between the search box and the navigational bar.
