A Second Little Poll

Filed under: Poll — Didier Stevens @ 6:51

The answer to the question I asked yesterday is: SafeBoot.zip. Excellent deduction work Matthew.

And now a second question: what are the most popular search term variations (two or more words) that land people on my blog https://blog.DidierStevens.com (according to WordPress.com)?

Post a comment with your answer.

  2. No, spidermonkey doesn’t even appear in the stats.

  3. just a guess going by my own experience with search term referrals, but would it happen to be your name?

  4. That’s true, my name also ranks high in the search term list, but certainly not as high as the ones I want you to guess.

    A little hint: I ask this second question because the answer is in sharp contrast with the first question.

  5. Probable your little Google Adwords thing from a few months back!

  6. It’s related to that, but what search terms?

  7. I am going to guess that it is one (or two) of the words in the sentence “Is your PC virus-free? Get it infected here!” Why, well because when googling your name that is the first result returned. Other evidence is it is listed in your top post section. As for a guess on the specific word(s) I’d say “PC virus free”, a link to your site was the 1st one returned when searching on that term (without using quotes in the search). But I didn’t explore every possible combination.

  8. Virus is one of the words in the search term, but what is the second word?

  9. That should have been “PC virus-free” but they both return your site as the 1st result.

  10. My last guess. Is it “get”? Again a search on “virus get” returned your site as the first result and “infected virus” was I think the fourth result. I am a little surprised it wasn’t “PC”.

  11. You’re very close. “get a virus” is a popular search term, but another verb is much more popular.

  12. Ok, so this is my last one. Download. I am feel kind of stupid for not thinking of it earlier.

  13. You’ve got it, “download virus”, “virus download”, “download a virus”, … All these search terms rank high in my stats.

    My Adwords post is linked to by a lot of web sites, so it ranks high in search results. And people looking for a virus are also directed to myse blog…
