Top 100 porn stars, or not?

Genesis Online has recently announced their list of the top 100 porn stars of 2009. They state that they come up with the list based of several factors:

We look at a ton of factors in ranking these top stars in the porn world. Whether it’s the amount of a girl’s name recognition, her looks, the heat of her scenes, her accomplishments in and out of hardcore, the number and quality of movies she’s made, or even something as simple as what she does and doesn’t do on camera, all of this gets put into our little system and then we spit out her spot on “Porn’s Hot 100.” It’s not a science by any means, but rather the opinion of our staff and some select industry insiders.

Of course opinion are like assholes, every one has one! We wanted to compare their list to the likes of more scientific data, like the Fame Registry top 100. FameRegistry.com compiles a list of top rated porn stars and ranks them in order of popularity based on a variety of information. Every porn star is rated on a special point system that is complied by tracking publicly available information such as their Alexa ranking, Google Term Frequency, # of MySpace friends, Overture Keyword Rating, Wordtracker Searches for their first and last name, Estibot Domain name values, the number of times they’ve appeared in magazines like Penthouse, Hustler and Genesis magazine and last but not least the number of awards each porn star has won from AVN, XRCO and FAME.

Fame Registry’s top 15 porn stars:

  1. Jenna Haze (Last Month # 1)
  2. Belladonna (Last Month # 2)
  3. Jesse Jane (Last Month # 3)
  4. Tera Patrick (Last Month # 4)
  5. Mary Carey (Last Month # 5)
  6. Sunny Leone (Last Month # 6)
  7. Briana Banks (Last Month # 7)
  8. Aria Giovanni (Last Month # 8 )
  9. Eva Angelina (Last Month # 9)
  10. Gina Lynn (Last Month # 10)
  11. Brittney Skye (Last Month # 14)
  12. Taylor Rain (Last Month # 11)
  13. Nikki Benz (Last Month # 12)
  14. Jessica Drake (Last Month # 13)
  15. Janine Lindemulder (Last Month # 20)

Genesis put Sasha Gray number one on their list, Fame Registry has her at #28! Janie Lindemulder comes in at #15 on the Fame Registry list, and Taylor Rain is #11, but neither one of them are even included on the Genesis list!  That is a huge difference! Jesse Jane is #3 on both lists as is Tera Patrick’s #4 ranking! Stormy Daniels ranks #5 on the Genesis, but comes in #19 of Fame Registry. Another big difference is Bree Olson, who ranks #6 on the Genesis list, but only #23 on Fame Registry.

I found the comparison of these two lists quite interesting since there were such major differences. I guess the folks at Genesis should consider the over-all popularity of these stars and not just their likes when comprising a top 100 list!
