"Angelina Jolie" vs. "Tiger Woods" vs. "David Beckham" vs. "Oprah Winfrey" vs. "Beyoncé Knowles"

Today, I compared the top five of the Forbes Celebrity 100. This is how they were ranked in June:
  1. Oprah Winfrey
  2. Tiger Woods
  3. Angelina Jolie
  4. Beyoncé Knowles
  5. David Beckham

Scale is based on the average worldwide traffic of "tiger woods" in all years
"angelina jolie" 2.25
"tiger woods" 1.00
"david beckham" 0.90
"oprah winfrey" 0.40
"beyonce knowles" 0.25

So how did these celebrities do in the Google-popularity stakes?
  1. Angelina Jolie
  2. Tiger Woods
  3. David Beckham
  4. Oprah Winfrey
  5. Beyonce Knowles

Jolie dramatically improves on her ranking: she totally dominates regarding online popularity. Winfrey on the other hand is less popular than her celebrity power ranking. By the way, I'm not bothering to include a 12-months Google Trends graph because it does not change the picture.
