Game of Thrones Season 6 Premiere Impacted Pornhub Traffic, Searches

pornhub

The Season 6 Game of Thrones premiere was on Sunday, and Pornhub has released details on how the premiere impacted the site's traffic - and searches.

In a post yesterday, Pornhub reported a decrease in visitors during the hour-long Game of Thrones season premiere on Sunday - a 4% decrease, to be exact. Considering the site gets more than 60 million daily visitors, that's no small number.

The premiere impacted more than just the traffic. Throughout the month of April "Game of Thrones," always a popular search on Pornhub, was slightly above average. However, the report indicates that in the days leading up to the premiere, GOT related searches "shot up," peaking at 370% on Sunday, April 24. According to the report, searches for Game of Thrones on the site saw increases of +200% for both the premiere and finale episodes of Season 5, with an average increase of 80% in related searches every Sunday in between.

The most common terms searched for alongside "Game of Thrones" are "Sex Scene," "Parody," and "Porn." The most frequently searched actors, actresses, and characters were Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) and Sibel Kekilli (Shae). The top terms searched for prior to Game of Thrones were "gamer girl," "medieval", "cleopatra" and "spartacus".

In case pictures do it more for you (heh), here's a gallery of infographics.

I'm genuinely wondering if "Ancient" means ancient times or well, old people given the other popular searches. Ah well, Pornhub articles are always fun, like the "Fallout 4" one.

The more impressive thing in my mind is that mainstream news sites are doing stories involving Pornhub. It wasn't that long ago that the "mainstream" internet never wanted to recognize the "other" side, no matter how significant.

Not that it's a bad thing. People treating porn as the huge industry and reality of life it is, rather than something we should never ever talk about, is some kind of progress I think.

"Scooby Doo Porn Parody" so popular?!!! :O
I reaaaally don't want to see one of those... "Jeenkees" or whatever they used to yell in surprise!

Do some people watch Game of Thrones for the tits and ass alone? Because if they do, then that's a bit... I don't know the word for it.

Normal? Common? Mundane?

Stupid. There we go. The internet is filled with tits and ass. You don't need a TV show to get your socks off.

People are perfectly capable of enjoying a lot of things they don't need. The only thing I see being stupid here is you being judgmental about the reasons people watch shows.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnd :O. Ahh well.

Funny thing is, I bet the people who only watch the show for T & A feel reeeeeeeally stupid after that last episode. :P

KILL IT WITH FIRE was for once a fully valid response

Pun intended.

Inefficient?

Why? Spoil it for me, if you wouldn't mind. By the time I watch it, when they release the dvds, I won't remember anything you said anyway.

OT: Who knew searching for "Jon Snow" was just a bit over just searching "hottie"... I guess the two are not mutually exclusive, then...

Other than that, I'm more surprised that "walk of shame" is higher than "lesbian" in this context... let alone "nude"... :P

Nope just folk looking for more Melisandre minus her necklace stuff.

Wait, no one is going to talk about that "common terms" list before game of thrones? Certainly they edited out the more common terms and why the heck is "Gamer Girl" on the top of the list?

EDIT: maybe there's actually a reason for that and maybe I don't want to know...

About 1/2 the runtime of GoT is devoted to either showing people having sex, talking about sex, or getting ready/ doing something for sex. Nothing against porn, I just wish people would call a spade a spade. GoT has a higher concentration of T&A then plenty of pornhub vids.
