An Internet Ghost is defined‚ as a term that is‚ widely searched at a given point of t‚ ime, but‚ that does not really ‚ exist. Olivia Dukakis, also known as Olivia Ducacus, is one such Internet ghost. A search made on the internet with Olivia Dukakis or Olivia Ducacus will return results for Olympia Dukakis, an Oscar winning actress who has featured in many movies, including Steel Magnolias and in sitcoms, including her role as Anna Madrigal in Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City.

Olivia Dukakis has become a widely searched term on the internet and probably it is the most misspelled name on cyberspace, prompting a host of sites distributing spam, pornography and nasty Trojan viruses for those searching this particular‚ Internet Ghost.

Another very popular Internet Ghost in recent times was Keith Ledger, aka Heath Ledger. Some also misspell his name as Keath Ledger. People looking for the deceased Brokeback Mountain and The Dark Knight actor misspelled his name on the internet, giving rise to yet another ghost on cyberspace. He was most sought after when news hit that he had died at the age of 28, of an overdose of prescription drugs at his New York apartment. The search again peaked around the time his film The Dark Knight was released posthumously starring him as the Joker. Misspellings of his name were highest in Canada, followed by the US and Ireland, and many users looking for Keath Ledger or Keith Ledger, complained of their computers being affected by similar spam, pornography and nasty Trojans as in the case of Olivia Dukakis.
