I was reading the Wikipedia entry for Tera Patrick when I seen this ….
In 2003, Tera Patrick became the masthead publisher of Genesis magazine, a popular men’s magazine which subtitles itself, “The Home of Porn’s Hottest Stars.” Since she has signed the contract with Genesis, Patrick has graced the cover of seven issues of the publication.
So how bad must it suck to be pushed aside as #2 to Stormy Daniels in the new Genesis Hot 100 porn stars list when you are the masthead publisher? I don’t know … but it’s got to sting a little considering the fact that Tera Patrick has worked her ass off for the past few years to get the title of Queen of Porn from Jenna Jameson, only to be pushed aside so easily by a magazine she is so closely associated with.
So it got me thinking about the whole situation and actual data. Who REALLY is hot shit right now? I mean we can speculate all we want but what about the cold hard facts? I decided to go with the only real hardcore data that is available to us through the wonderous powers of the all mighty Internet.
I will not dispute the fact that both Tera Patrick and Stormy Daniels are hot as fuck and both have a very large fan base. But what I want to know is exactly who is more popular than the other? I conduct this research using only publicly found data from the Internet. In my report I am also including Briana Banks. I happen to know she’s far, far more popular than the Genesis hot 100 report reflects and I am going to use this data to prove that too!
Alexa Traffic Reports
The first data available to us is traffic ranking reports from Alexa.com. Now any expert will tell you that this data isn’t really THAT accurate but it’s really the best tool we have that is publically available for ranking traffic for websites. But again I do want to be completely fair and state that the data found on Alexa isn’t meant to be 100% accurate, just show you a basic idea of the average traffic a website may get.
- TeraPatrick.com has an Alexa traffic rank of 28.087
- Brianabanks.com has an Alexa traffic rank of 101.643
- StormyDaniels.com has an Alexa traffic rank of 674,758
This means that according to the Alexa ranking system, StormyDaniels.com gets less than 2,000 unique visitors a day where as TeraPatrick.com is getting over 20,000. This data may or may not be real accurate so let us move on.
Domain name experts (or domainers for short) are making a killing in the virtual real estate market. They buy domain names for low prices and resell them for more. It’s a unique combination of the real estate and stock market, all done in a virtual world of the dot com market.
These people make it their business to know the value of a domain name based on certain factors. One of these key factors is the value of keywords that make up a domain name such as “Tera Patrick”. This is a name of a porn star to me and you but to these guys it’s a keyword that put together with a .com, becomes on very valuable domain. It’s valuable because these guys know how many times people search for the keywords “Tera Patrick” in any given day, month or year.
Google Term Frequency
There are three based tools used for this. The first is called Google Term Frequency. This basically means how many times the keywords appear in Google.
- The Google Term Frequency for Stormy Daniels is 80,400
- The Google Term Frequency for Tera Patrick is 3,460,000
- The Google Term Frequency for Briana Banks is 4,830,000
So using Google Term Frequency alone, Briana Banks would be more popular than Tera Patrick and there isn’t even any competition with Stormy Daniels …. she’s so low on the chart it’s not even funny. In gamer terms, Stormy Daniels would be a “noob”.
Overture Ratings – OVT
Next we have what is call the OVT or Overture rating. This is a basic judge of how many times per month people search for the keywords. In this case our keywords are Tera Patrick, Stormy Daniels and Briana Banks.
- Briana Banks has an OVT Rating of 179,713
- Tera Patrick has an OVT rating of 212,520
- Stormy Daniels has an OVT rating of 8,488
Using this method Tera Patrick is on top, with Briana Banks in a close second and Stormy Daniels again off in nowhere land. To be honest with you, when I started this report, I expected Stormy Daniels to be really high on the list, not off in an extremely distant third place. I knew Tera Patrick would rank higher but I truly had no idea Stormy Daniels would prove to be quite so unpopular with the Internet folks.
Next we looked at WordTracker. Wordtracker periodically compiles a database of over 330 million search terms which is updated on a weekly basis. All search terms are collected from the major metacrawlers – Dogpile and Metacrawler. In short, it tells us how many times per day someone searches for a specified keyword.
- Briana Banks 9,222
- Stormy Daniels 4,310
- Tera Patrick 14,015
Every week this data is updated. So it’s accurate as of a week ago! So we aren’t talking data that isn’t relevant. This kind of report shows very clearly that as of right now Stormy Daniels may be more popular than Lanny Barby but she’s nowhere near the popularity of stars like Tera Patrick or Briana Banks or even Tory Lane for that matter. In fact, Stormy Daniels isn’t as popular as her fellow contract girl Jesse Jane according to the most updated Wordtracker report.
Estibot Total Website Estimate
But let us keep going. Surely there is something out there that will back up the claims of others that Stormy Daniels is the best. Next I performed an automated valuation of their domain names. The value of their domain names were calcualted used a complicated and confidential method that uses a variety of data to come up with a figure of a round about value of their domain name.
It is a computerized system so it doesn’t realize that Tera Patrick is a popular porn star … it just knows the data that is stored on the keyword phrase Tera Patrick so in reality these domain names would be worth MUCH MUCH MUCH more. But using this system it basically takes how many times the keywords appear in google, how many poeple link to these pages, the page rank of a domain, the alexa rank, how many estimated uniue visitors per day each website gets, if you were to purchase these keywords using pay per click, how much each of those would cost you (per click), your OVT rating and your Wordtracker estimated searches per day. Using this data they get an estimate for each girl.
- TeraPatrick.com is thought to be worth $500,000
- BrianaBanks.com is thought to be worth $390,000
- StormyDaniels.com is thought to be worth $130,000
So there we have it. Stormy Daniels may be super sexy and get some 2 second spots in some real movies but it doesn’t translate into the popularity that others are trying to make it to be. As much as I hate to say it, Tera Patrick has everyone beat when it comes to down right porn star fame.
For fun I ran reports on some of the real top starlets in the industry right now. These girls include Tera Patrick, Briana Banks, Jenna Haze, Jesse Jane, Stormy Daniels, Sunny Leone, Tory Lane, Savanna Samson, Lanny Barby, Eva Angelina and Amy Reid.
