Forget the "50 Best Dressed People," the "25 Most Hunkiest Men" and other popularity lists. Lycos has weighed in with a new list based on search popularity: "The Lycos 50 Elite."
Each week, the Lycos 50 site summarizes the current top 50 search topics and other search trends, based on what people look for at the popular Lycos web site. However, the new Lycos 50 Elite list honors those topics that have remained popular over the entire two years that the Lycos 50 has existed.
Those honored in the first compilation of the list are Britney Spears, Pamela Anderson, Jennifer Lopez, the WWF, tattoos, Pokemon, Dragonball and Las Vegas. They have been in the Lycos 50 since it began. Honorable mentions also went to topics that made the top 50 list for at least one year: the Backstreet Boys, the Bible, Eminem, Final Fantasy, Harry Potter, Marijuana, 'N Sync, Napster, Sailor Moon, The Simpsons, Skateboarding and South Park.
If you see a yellow star next to a particular search topic, that tells you the topic is a Lycos Elite award winner. Click on the star to learn more about the topic's elite status.
