A few month ago I blogged a chart containing the domains that our data showed were the most visible in the German Googleindex. In the comments to that entry and in e-mails that I received afterwards I was asked to repeat this in regular intervals. Feeding on the fact that absolute values are not that interesting, in the future at the end of each month I will list the fifteen domains that I think did very well or really bad within the Googleindex. As the point of reference I will take the last week of the preceding month and calculate the percentaged difference in visibility between the two month. These values are based on the first 100 hits of a six-figure number of a colorful array of assorted and comprehensive German keywords.

14megaflieger.de+72,24%
15ricardo.ch+71,79%


The Austrian branch of Wer-liefert-was, wlw.at is definitely one of this month winners. Ancestry.com was able to profit from the fact that rootsweb.com migrated to this new domain. Conrad put up a rather beautiful and successful new optimization and t-online.de seems to be slowly recovering from their relaunch.

Losers

1semager.de-99,56%
2dnsdojo.com-98,77%
3nextag.de-89,07%

13meinestadt.de-63,85%
14dastelefonbuch.de-51,66%
15kino.de-46,37%


With semanger.de and Technorati we have two sites as definite losers who profited strongly from their indexing of their search-results and tag-pages respectively. The inclusion of TexTag, Meta-Preisvergelich.de and Preistrend.de also shows that an above-average amount of price-comparison sites were affected. Dastelefonbuch.de gave a majority of its rankings back to telefonbuch.de and thus loses.
