CZ:Top Google search queries

From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
Jump to: navigation, search

Here is a list (as of Oct. 23, 2007) of the 20 top Google search queries in which CZ appeared. These are the queries that bring us high rankings, but perhaps few clicks.

# pct query      position
1 32% metabolism 7 
2 17% list of us presidents 10 
3 9% histones 10 
4 4% famous tennis players 6 
5 4% avril lavigne 73 
6 4% gaspee affair 8 
7 4% don maclean 9 
8 4% metal gear solid wiki 7 
9 3% avril 53 
10 3% checklist template 11 
11 2% pnas impact factor 8 
12 2% first punic war 10 
13 2% periodic table of elements 19 
14 2% cat colors 9 
15 2% stockxchng 4 
16 2% onslow beach 5 
17 2% approved 10 
18 2% depression of 1893 9 
19 1% cobalt ii nitrate 8 
20 1% famous marine biologist 6 

And the top search queries from which users clicked through to CZ (i.e., we might rank lower, but we get more traffic because the searches themselves are more popular):

# pct query         position
1 19% avril lavigne 103 
2 19% periodic table of elements 19 
3 16% mitochondria 18 
4 7% penguins 16 
5 5% rottweiler 45 
6 4% avril 71 
7 4% biology 23 
8 3% herpes 228 
9 3% labrador 97 
10 3% great dane 37 
11 3% hitler 38 
12 2% table of elements 16 
13 2% great danes 30 
14 2% declaration of independence 21 
15 2% vasco da gama 11 
16 2% hayley williams 42 
17 1% gonorrhea 164 
18 1% periodic table 159 
19 1% the periodic table of elements 20 
20 1% edgar allen poe 20 

Notice that we can get appreciable amounts of traffic despite being far away from the top ten. But notice also that we are appearing fairly high in the rankings for many searches...at least, for a project that has been around for about a year!

Don't ask me why the positions are different between the two tables...I don't know...I think it changes very often. I also don't know what exactly the "position" even means, because I'm not locating several of these anywhere near the number as a position number in the search results...very puzzling.
