People using Internet search engines are more interested in business, travel and jobs and less interested in sex sites than they were five years ago, according to a study led by a Penn State University researcher.



In May 1997, 16.8% of searches on the Excite search engine were for sex-related or pornographic Web sites. By May 2001, that percentage had dropped almost in half to 8.5%, according to an article in the March edition of IEEE Computer, a journal of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
