The Google result counts for common TLDs continued to slide dramatically during February. So significantly that it seems the company is really doing a ruthless clean-up of their indexed content (or are tightening up the algorithms)
Bucking the trend, by a country mile, is the .mobi TLD, which has risen an 35% (which seems astonishing in the context of the others’ trends).
The numbers this month (to be compared with these from the start of February):
Now, when I started out, I genuinely thought I’d just do this as an interesting analysis of mobile web growth trends. Now I’m a bit worried it’s starting to look like corporate propoganda (disclosure disclosure!).
However, the numbers are real (even if, as ever, doubtful as an absolute measure of real content).
So I will continue. And I happen to know that the TLD’s name sales are surging up, so I suspect the trend will too. All I can think of doing is at least automating it so I don’t have to remember to every month.
