That doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone searching for “Belle Knox” was trying to watch her porn videos. They could have just as easily been trying to watch her appearance on The View.
AEBN is in a unique position to reveal which performers are bona fide porn “stars” as voted by the viewers. Every day, AEBN compiles consumer data showing what its customers truly prefer. At the end of the year, AEBN distills this data into a list of the top 40 stars of the year.
