The 100 popular celebrities on the web includes some of the biggest names in music, movies, television and sports, all ranked by their online presence. Each of these stars falls in one spot or another on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list of the most powerful celebrities.
For the web rank, Forbes researches the amount of visibility these stars have on Google. Unlike the celebrity 100 social rankings, this methodology does not include presence on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, rather how much the celebrity name appears in Google search results for web pages, news, blogs, videos and images.Despite not including social networking, the social leader also tops the web rankings for the May 2011 list. Pop star Lady Gaga takes the cake in both places, as well as leads all other celebrities on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list for 2011.
