Most Popular Celebrities

The collection shows the most visited celebrities on Wikipedia. Here’s the list of most popular celebrities.

The popularity of any celebrity is time-bound and it fades away with time as someone else takes away the ‘most popular’ spot from the former celebrity.

And when it comes to judging who’re the most popular celebrites in the world,the very first parameter to evaluate this may be Who’re the most searched celebrities in the world ?

But as wikipedia tops hundreds of thousands of search results when a particular celebrity is searched(wikipedia mostly shows person’s biography,achievements etc) so Who’re the most popular celebrities on Wikipedia ? has its own significance.

So,we have compiled a list of popular celebrites which are currently the most viewed (bringing maximum pageviews) on Wikipedia. Some of the results are really astounding but fact is a fact…

So here goes the list….

..Popular Celebrity #1…………………………………………………………………….

Online searching tendency(and hence wikipedia popularity) is event driven and short termed. All these results display the rankings for the month of August 2008. This might change drastically in any other month.

But anyways, the above listed popular celebrities are a blend of long lived and short-term celebs. For instance, ‘The Undertaker’ has been gracing the list of  ‘Most popular celebrities’ for decades now. On the other side, ‘Jonas Brothers’ are relatively new entrant in the exclusive list of popular celebrities.
