In theory has more than the three or four readers a day that I expected and, interestingly, almost no reader comes from a random web search. (As opposed to, say, a targeted search like “Luca Trevisan in theory“.)
The exceptions are interesting, especially because they show what Google thinks that this site is relevant for.
- Some readers were directed here when searching for “P NP“, a search for which In Theory is in the top 20.
- A few readers came searching for “feminism for dummies“, a search for which we are ranked number 3.
- Most amusingly, a reader came here searching for “evil masterminds“, a sentence that I never wrote. (The power of anchortext and google-bombing.) This is site is ranked number 3 for this search.
- Finally, some readers have found this place as the number 1 result for “Beijing stinky tofu“.
Draw your own conclusions.
