People are searching for Pokemon Go more than porn on Google

Just like death is permanent in life, porn has been a permanent feature of Internet since its evolution. So much so that porn happened to be the second most searched term after god on Google. However, the newly released hyper-hit from Nintendo and Niantic, Pokemon Go has overtaken porn as most searched term on Google.

Nintendo’s Pokemon Go has already outstripped Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat in terms of time spent by users and now it has broken the ultimate barrier of Internet, Google search. The Pokemon Go which is an augmented reality game has now also beaten Google search terms for ‘porn’.

The data is available from Google’s Trends website, which tracks how often queries are entered into the search engine, allowing visitors to compare the popularity of several search terms.

Searches for the game began to spike last Wednesday after the game was released in Australia and New Zealand, and rose further still when it was released in the US at the end of last week.

According to Google Trends data on Monday, worldwide searches for the game outstripped those for porn by 33%. However, now that the Pokemon Go is slowly being released in other parts of the world including a pan-European rollout, the search for the term is bound to come down.

Looks like John Hanke, the creator of Pokemon Go is laughing his way to the bank!
