The Witricity Resource
Posted on June 2007 in Statistics
This thread follows on from the article Witricity And Google and charts Google results for a search on “witricity”. It is intended simply to monitor the propogation of the term from Day 1 (June 7th 2007) - the date of the first press release from MIT. All times are GMT and numbers show results found on the Google search.
Please note that where numbers seem to buck an obvious trend, this may possibly be put down to discrepencies between Google data centers (Google uses several data centers to deliver results often dependent on user location).
Edit July 7th 2007: An interesting footnote. The term “witric” seems to be starting to grow whilst the term “witricity” continues to shrink as duplicate news articles and ageing blog postings start to get weeded out. Results for “witric” are now at 16,900, whereas within the first 2 weeks they barely made 400. However, this is largely down to one “made for adsense” site spawning lots of content-light pages.
