Google  is the most used Internet search in the world with more than one billion servers throughout the world.

On March 8, in observance of  International Women’s Day, the Philippine office of Google unveiled its list of the most “influential Filipino women” with “greatest online mindshare in 2010.”

According to,  mindshare is “the level of awareness in the minds of consumers that a particular product commands” or “the amount of attention required by something, the time spent thinking about something.”

Google measured  “influence” of personalities based on the number of  search queries which is shown in the search tool  Zeitgeist.
Zeitgeist (German term for spirit of the times) compiles all search queries every day.

In one year, the personalities with biggest “awareness” or mindshare are measured.

Shalani is now  co-host of the top rating TV5 show of Willie Revillame called “Willing Willie.” She is now being linked to Willie himself.
