The SEO of 1 to 20

September 22, 2009 3 Comments

Following on from the SEO of A to Z, here's which sites rank first for the numbers one to 20. (Aaron Bradley has added the US and Canada equivalents in the comments below).

  • 1 - BBC Radio 1
  • 2 - BBC Radio 2
  • 3 - 3 (the mobile phone company)
  • 4 - Channel 4
  • 5 - Channel Five, the TV station
  • 6 - BBC 6 Music, the radio station
  • 7 - Wikipedia on the number 7
  • 8 - Wikipedia on the number 8
  • 9 - 9, the film (despite the Times's fear over the SEO-ness of its title)
  • 10 - 10 Downing Street
  • 11 - Elevenplusexams.co.uk
  • 12 - Wikipedia
  • 13 - Wikipedia
  • 14 - Wikipedia
  • 15 - Fifteen (the foundation to inspire disadvantaged young people to create great careers in the restaurant industry)
  • 16 - Wikipedia
  • 17 - 17 Again, a film review at imdb.com
  • 18 - Wikipedia
  • 19 - 19Entertainment.com, the site of successful music manager Simon Fuller (behind American Idol and the like)
  • 20 - Usually Wikipedia by the look of it, but currently the Telegraph is top of the web results for its recent story on the 20 worst sentences by author Dan Brown.

Oh, and 50 Cent owns 50 and Kiss FM 100.

    hiya, Malcolm, nice idea. Amazing the amount of wikipedia entries.

    Interesting to see how different the results are using google.com vs google.co.uk . eg, .com shows the wikipedia homepage for the number 1. 10 is australian channel 10, etc.
