Searching for Love

Did you know that in 2010 the most searched-for word on Google was "Love"?  Oprah talked about it.  It's so nice to know that what most people are looking for on the internet is positive. Love makes the world go around, and finding it on the internet is a great thing.  I plugged in the word "love" into my Google search engine, and it came back with "About 1,680,000,000 results" (or 1 billion, 680 million).  Not only is it the most searched word on the internet, but the internet has a lot of resources for those who are searching for love.

The first site that popped up for my Google search of the word "love," is the Love (disambiguation) page on Wikipedia.  The second is the Love Calculator.  By plugging in the names of two people the Love Calculator tells in a percentage what their chances are at love. After that comes videos, images, and love letters.

Have a great day filled with love!

Update: Love is no longer the top searched word on Google, but it gets about 25,270,000,000  (or 25 billion, 270 million!) results as of October 6, 2016! That's 25 times more than six years ago!
