It was quite a surprise when Google unveiled Malaysia’s most searched people in 2010. One name really stood out because she’s new to the chart and she isn’t even a celebrity. And what’s more surprising is that she managed to beat the most popular celebrity in Malaysia, Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza to become one of the most searched people in Google Malaysia 2010.
Without any celebrity status like Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza who is Malaysia’s sweetheart, an unknown blogger Hanis Zalikha managed to sit on the sixth position as one of the most searched people in Google Malaysia 2010.

This is the question that must be in everybody’s mind when Google unveiled what Malaysians have been busy searching in 2010.
Hanis Zalikha isn’t a big-time celebrity like Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza who fell to number nine in the chart of most searched people in Google Malaysia in 2010. She doesn’t claim to be a celebrity with a pack of paparazzis chasing her across downtown Kuala Lumpur.
In fact, 20 year old Hanis Zalikha is just a university undergraduate majoring in Business Studies at the Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) at Segamat, Johor. However, she does model part time and was seen as an extra in the movie Momok the Movie.
She claims that her popularity may be due to her blog, inibelogsaya.blogspot.com which she started two years ago that has already had a following of close to fifteen thousand fans. She too was surprised after being informed of her sudden rise in popularity even surpassing that of Malaysia’s sweetheart, Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza.
She thinks that to find information about the number one singer in Malaysia is not difficult so people don’t rely too much on the internet but because she’s not a celebrity, people try to find information about her on the internet. And thus the sudden rise in number of searches for Hanis Zalikha.

Whatever the reasons are for Hanis Zalikha’s sudden rise in popularity, one thing is for sure, she has beaten the number one Malaysian singer and Malaysia’s sweetheart, Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza to become one of the most searched people in Google Malaysia 2010.
