How Bad Must it Suck to be Tera Patrick right now?

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 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.

  • has an Alexa traffic rank of 28.087
  • has an Alexa traffic rank of 101.643
  • has an Alexa traffic rank of 674,758

This means that according to the Alexa ranking system, gets less than 2,000 unique visitors a day where as 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.

  • is thought to be worth $500,000
  • is thought to be worth $390,000
  • 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.

The Hot 100 Porn Stars

Just as Forbe’s magazine each year ranks CEOs and Celebrities, Genesis Magazine ranks the hottest 100 porn stars. This is the 10th year they’ve produce such a list and this year is no different.

The Top 100 Porn Stars

Looking at the list this year a few things stand out ….. Tera Patrick clearly needs to step it up in the “real world” because despite the fact that her movies sell better and she’s a more popular PORN star, she was picked only as number two in favor of Stormy Daniels who works more in the mainstream including movies like Superbad, Knocked Up and on TV shows like Dirt, The Tonight Show and ABC’s Nightline. Apparently being the best porn star doesn’t have as much to do with being an actual porn star as it does getting your face on Silly Tera Patrick, she should have known that!

With a talent pool as large as there has ever been in the adult industry, Wicked Pictures contract star and director Stormy Daniels was chosen as the top star of the past year. “Stormy’s career in front of the cameras and behind them was simply amazing,” said Dan Davis, Editor-in-Chief of GENESIS. “Operation Desert Stormy was just one of her hits this year, and let’s not forget the other movies she wrote, directed and appeared in, her acclaimed feature dance appearances and her appearances in tv shows, movies and music videos.”

Stormy also directed the all-girl hit The Predator, starred in Black Widow, and has also appeared in in the best-selling DVDs for Superbad and Knocked Up, as well on the TV shows “Dirt,” “The Tonight Show” and ABC’s “Nightline” and in the music video for Maroon 5’s hit, “Wake Up Call.” The Wicked Pictures epic Operation Desert Stormy, which she wrote, directed and starred in, was recently named the “Best Sex Comedy” at the 2008 AVN Awards, and the show also saw Stormy winning the Jenna Jameson Crossover Star of the Year award.

Other interesting things about the list is how low Internet favorites like Briana Banks and Lanny Barby are. I’m not sure what the criteria was to make up the list but top sales and Internet searches clearly wasn’t one of them or someone like Briana Banks wouldn’t have been below starlets like Hillary Scott, Gina Lynn, Carmen Luvana, Rebecca Linares, Anette Schwarz and Gianna Michaels. I’m not saying these girls aren’t pretty or don’t have talent but let’s be real … when it comes to sales figures and dollar signs they don’t quite beat Briana Banks or Lanny Barby.

I will say this though, it was great to see the last name on the list was Jenna Jameson. Jenna Jameson’s appearance on the very end of the list is a big slap in the face. I mean someone needed to say it and I’m glad that Genesis Magazine finally did. Jenna Jameson was huge in her time but her bitch attitude and fuck you to the industry that made her the money she now enjoys is just to much for me. She became rich in this business and now she’s to fucking good for it? I guess that’s a rant for another day.

To see how the rest of the rankings shaped up, pick up the August 2008 issue of GENESIS with the free bonus edition of “Porn’s Hot 100” on sale at newsstands everywhere. The main issue also features pictorials with Eva Angelina, Audrey Bitoni, Stoya, Roxy Jezel, Nikki Kane, Jayme Langford and many more of porn’s top stars.
