Movies, TV, Porn Outrank Music in Top 2011 BitTorrent Search Terms

Music terms rank behind movies and TV shows in BitTorrent searches, according to a list of top searches at Kat.ph posted at TorrentFreak. Kat.ph - also known as Kickass Torrents - is a popular torrent search index where people can search for links to movies, TV shows, music, games and applications.

The top music-related term, and the only one in the top 50, is "Adele" at No. 44. In the top searches list for 2010, Eminem was the top music search at No. 47.

The fact that movies rank higher than movies makes perfect sense. Popular movies tend to have massive global appeal and are translated into numerous foreign languages (or have subtitles). Any single music title has less global appeal than a top movie. Case in point: "Avatar" has grossed $2.7 billion worldwide since its 2009 release, according to Box Office Mojo. A single hit record would gross in the hundreds of millions.

The top film-related search term is for the movie "Thor" at No. 9. "Harry Potter" comes in at No. 12, "Kung Fu Panda 2" is No. 14 and "Green Lantern" is No. 15. TV is also popular. "Glee" is No 13," "House" is No. 45 and "Breaking Bad" is No. 50.

Porn terms rank higher than music, too. In the top 40 are such search terms as "xxx," "porn," "sex" and "playboy."

The top two searches are "ita" and "french" that help people find content in Italian and French languages, respectively. The top ten also includes "Italian" and "2011," both of which help narrow down the search results.
