The Katie Holmes Experiment

So, here's a fairly silly way to spend an hour or two.

I've noticed that over on Yahoo Buzz, Katie Holmes is currently responsible for some 0.1% of all searches on Yahoo. Hmm. I also seem to recall (old figure) that Google gets 3 billion search requests a month.

Yes, now, I am aware that who searches for what on the different engines are, well, different. But just pretending for a moment, making a guess, let's say that they're the same. And that the Google number is the number of all searches.

So that would mean that there are 100,000 people a day searching for Katie Holmes. That's a fair old bundle of traffic really.

So, would throwing together an almost random bundle of stories about Katie Holmes' wedding to Tom Cruise, add a few photos and so on, will that get some of that traffic?

In fact, given that according to the link: operator on Google, the number 1 result has only 38 links to it, is it possible to get a lot of that traffic?

I'll let you know in due course.
