Web 2.0 crowned the 'millionth English word'

I read an interesting news that a US-based language monitoring group crowned Web 2.0 as the one millionth word or phrase in the English language.

The Global Language Monitor, which uses a math formula to track the frequency of words and phrases in print and electronic media, said Web 2.0 appeared over 25 000 times in searches and was widely accepted, making it the legitimate, one millionth word.

There is some controversy among the linguists, but surely Web 20.0 is becoming a widely used phrase, especially on the Internet.
