All I'm getting from those graphs is that she was very popular in 2004, and that many people became interested enough in her after she won the FO to do a web search on her. Sorry, but people searching for her after she won is no indication of her popularity prior to that match. I think you could look up any player and you would see that they get a lot of web searches after they win a major. It looks to me like her popularity went down a lot after 2004. If she was as popular as many claim she is, I would think web searches for her would not have taken such a dive.
