So popular in fact that she is the top result for the letter "H" on Giant Bomb's search engine:

 UHHHH...WHAT THE FUCK?
 UHHHH...WHAT THE FUCK?

So it would appear that Sakura has defeated our beloved hamburger page...where's BiffMcBlumpkin? This has to be against the laws of physics right?
 
Another fun fact is that the character L from Death Noter is the top result for the letter "L"

@zombiepie:
Hmm...in Sakura's case, it could be because of all of the Naruto games listed on Giant Bomb. As for L, I don't see why he is popping up on GB, could it be perhaps that the search engine is linked to ALL of the content from several Whiskey Media sites?

@ShadowKnight508:  No one really knows how the search engine works. I think it is based on total hits on a site and fit. Fit being how similar a wiki entry matches what has been typed into the search engine. As L the character's character name is L it has perfect fit and is top result.

L is top because exact matches appear first. It then orders by page popularity. Exactly how that page popularity is calculated, I don't know. But however it's calculated, it is calculated wrongly - Hamburger should always be top!!!!

Sakura's GB page had way less games listed than the Hamburger page, so it isn't the amount of games one page has. I really don't know what in Haruhi's name is going on at this point...

I'm sorry but badassery is not a determining factor in how search engines work. If it did...actually that would make searching for stuff on Google harder so the hell with that.

Its probably people looking for ways to blow Sakura up with a giant bomb.

If you can look me in the eyes and say that Naruto is better than hamburgers...I can't help you and may God have mercy on your soul.

Well, Naruto don't make me fat and also I can't read a hamburger 
So I think Naruto is more healthier then a hamburger, so sue me

On a related note, would it ever be possible for Hatsune Miku to come up first if one typed "Hat"?
