Fame Registry is a Who’s Who of famous porn stars. My name is Kelli Roberts and I started this site years ago after working with some professional “domainers”. I realized the data they used to value a domain name could be slightly modified to determine the popularity of porn stars.
Like all other top porn star lists, none of our rankings are based on the opinion of one “expert” or a selected group of “industry professionals”. Instead we use real statistical data, which is the only way to get real numbers on popularity.
It seems everyone has an opinion about who the most popular porn stars are. Barely a month goes by where some publication or another isn’t putting out some arbitrary list of top ranked porn stars. Some will rank them based on movie sales or some based on reader input and yet others will put together lists based on no real rhyme or reason at all. Opinions are nice but I wanted to know who really was the most popular porn star based on real scientific data.
Fame Registry keeps track of a large list of porn stars and ranks them in order of popularity using a variety of public data to produce these rankings including Internet search engine popularity, website traffic, domain name value, and more. Every porn star is rated on a special point system that is compiled by tracking Alexa Traffic Reports, Google Term Frequency, Overture Keyword Rating, Wordtracker Searches for their first and last name, Estibot Domain name values, Penthouse Pet status and last but not least the number of awards won from AVN, XRCO and FAME.
To oversimplify a very confusing and complicated system, we basically rank each porn star in the database based on how well they perform in a few public sources. For example we rank all the porn stars for the traffic to their website, we then rank them based on how often their name appears in Google, how many times a day someone searches for their name and then give a set number of points for those rankings and then add them all up to determine who is the hottest porn star.
Because the Internet is ever-evolving and data changes often we also include in each report the last time the ranking was performed and update data from each source periodically.
There are thousands of porn stars … most we have never heard of and then there are the stars we have such as Eva Angelina, Tera Patrick, Bree Olson, Stormy Daniels and Briana Banks. But how do you know which of these stars is really the most popular? And what factor determines her popularity? Is a porn star the most popular if she has the most Facebook friends or won the most industry awards? Or is she most popular if she’s appeared in magazines more than the others?
Fame Registry compiles a list of top rated porn stars and ranks them in order of popularity based on a variety of REAL data. As there is no central record-keeping source for popularity data, most people simply project who they think is most popular based on random sales data from various sources which is often skewed or only partially correct data. Until now there has been no real attempt to accurately list the porn stars in order of popularity based on real data.
Fame Registry uses proprietary algorithms that take into account several measures of popularity for porn stars. The primary forms of measure include who people are looking for when they search for porn stars using major search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, Dogpile, and Metacrawler. In addition, we factor in the popularity of a porn star’s official website, specifically based on total traffic to the site itself and their number of followers and friends a porn star may have on popular social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.
What’s important to note is that all data used is publicly available and comes from no one specific source so that no one porn star is dependent on any one source to judge his or her popularity. In other words, we don’t feel any one source of data is truly accurate or a true judge of the overall popularity of a porn star. Instead, we use a variety of sources and compile the list each month based on the entire scope of the data. However, we should note that because this method of tracking relies solely on Internet-based information, those porn stars with one name only like “August” or “Peaches” are not able to be tracked and as such are not part of our databases.
