The Most Dangerous Celebrities To Search For Online

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/the-most-dangerous-celebrities-to-search-for-online-2012-9

megan foxMegan Fox and Selena Gomez are among the most searched celebrities on the web, and they’re also the most likely to put you at risk for a virus.

This morning, McAfee released its list of the most dangerous cyber celebrities to search online. 

The list takes a look at everyone from popular actors and athletes to musicians and comedians, most targeted by cybercriminals to lure audiences to sites filled with malware to steal both passwords and personal information. 

As expected, the list includes mostly women; however, missing from the list are top newsmakers Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, and Kristen Stewart.

Jimmy Kimmel knocks Brad Pitt off this year’s list, becoming the sole male to make the top 20 in 2012. 

We were surprised by many of the celebs who made the list.

10. Sofia Vergara

Five of the top ten most dangerous people to search online are Latina, according to McAfee

Vergara appeared in this summer’s “Three Stooges” film and plays leading lady Gloria Delgado-Prichett on Emmy-winning “Modern Family.”

9. Salma Hayek

The Mexican nativ! e starre d in this summer’s box-office fizzle “Savages” and recently made headlines for her German Vogue interview when she claimed she “hardly had any memories of what it is to be Mexican.”

8. Cameron Diaz

We were surprised by the inclusion of the “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” actress.  

However, her role in “Bad Teacher” last summer brought her back into the limelight.

Comparing Paid Celebrity Endorsements and Natural Search

Maria Sharapova vs Megan Fox

Canon has spent millions of dollars on promoting Maria Sharapova, but no one has spent much money on promoting Megan Fox on television ads. But from the search volume, Megan Fox has far larger search volume (implying people remember her name and search for it) versus Maria Sharapova.

    Megan Fox  — The Perfect Babe Product Placement

    megan-fox-1 megan-fox-2 megan_fox_covers_june_2009_ellemegan-fox-babemegan-fox-pink-strapless-dress

    No, this post is not about Megan Fox. Well, yeah it is.  But it’s about the MARKETING of Megan Fox.

    Megan Fox has been around in films and TV since 2001 (see filmography below).  But it wasn’t until 2007 when she starred in the first Transformers movie that she burst on the scene and became an overnight mega celebrity, especially online (see Google Search Volume chart).  If you look at Ford’s search volume during the same period, there was NO lift in search that was detectable — there probably was some lift, but it is simply not detectable.

    So Megan Fox went from very very little awareness to not only massive awareness, but also massive demand — people remembered her name and even took action (performed searches on her name). If some product placements would have had only 10% of the success of the “megan fox” product placement, they might actually justify the immense cost a bit better (millions of dollars paid by the advertiser to the movie makers to place products into the storyline of the movie).

    And why is she “perfect,” in the marketing sense, of course? Her search volume has not only sustained but also continued to grow. She was not a flash in the pan that went away after the advertising/media dollars stopped or the public interest died off (see the snuggie and etrade search volume charts below).
