Behavioural Science Top 5

leave a comment »


Let’s assume for a while that Google shows you what is important. So Google’s Behavioural Science Top 5 could be translated as “The 5 most important websites about Behavioural Science”.

Well let’s take a look at them:

So there are about 10 million hits for that keyword and this page is ranking #3, just behind Wikipedia (no chance to beat them) and the FBI (probably better not to provoke them). This is actually pretty incredible. Thank you Google!

We will do our best to deliver high quality content.

PS: If you wonder: This picture was taken using a proxy – so no faking with the results, but they might look different on your computer, because Google does track you *creepy…I know*.

Blog stats january 2010

leave a comment »


Those are the stats of the Behavioural Science Blog for the last few week, with the normal dip around Christmas holidays.

In this chart, showing the blog from the beginning to now, you can see that it has been around 800 views monthly for a while now. Well I guess that this is going to change, considered that there are some really good articles coming up.

I also find it interesting to look at the search terms, that people entered into Google (or other search engines) to arrive at this site. Every combination of “behavioural science” is doing pretty well, but also “heterotypic continuity” – a very specific search term. Actually the most search terms only appeared once, but it would have been a too-long list to publish them here.
