ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the search terms carried out on the search network of Overture through August 2005. The searches reached more than 80% of the online population in Great Britain. Overture provides advertising-based search results to sites such as Yahoo!, MSN, Wanadoo, and AltaVista. Both the top 10 search tables illustrate the significance of the market for children's programming as 7 out of 10 channel searches were for children's channels. This suggests the Internet is a popular tool within youth culture.
