IndexWatch 04/2008

2. May 2008, 19:00

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.

Winners

# Domain Change
1 wlw.at +292,45%
2 ancestry.com +241,55%
3 magnus.de +209,09%
4 conrad.de +154,46%
5 seekport.de +110,14%
6 t-online.de +104,20%
7 google.com +104,05%
8 urlaub-im-web.de +98,11%
9 preisvergleich.org +95,56%
10 isos.at +86,15%
11 motor-talk.de +84,35%
12 branchen-info.net +83,60%
13 wissen.de +73,99%
14 megaflieger.de +72,24%
15 ricardo.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

# Domain Change
1 semager.de -99,56%
2 dnsdojo.com -98,77%
3 nextag.de -89,07%
4 rootsweb.com -87,28%
5 itsbetter.de -84,95%
6 meta-preisvergleich.de -84,71%
7 boardreader.com -80,46%
8 technorati.com -80,19%
9 preistrend.de -79,40%
10 trojaner-board.de -78,24%
11 local24.de -73,58%
12 quantcast.com -67,96%
13 meinestadt.de -63,85%
14 dastelefonbuch.de -51,66%
15 kino.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.
