This is a two-way comparison between Google and SimilarWeb. There are two different rankings that Google uses to help determine the most popular searches, referred to as a Keyword Index and a Domain Index.
According to companies like Victorious, both algorithms are based on how many times the most popular search terms appear on the web. They are based on searches of thousands of pages. SimilarWeb used search volume to calculate these rankings, while Google used rankings based on the number of organic searches. Both algorithms are a bit skewed as they rely on organic traffic data from over a million queries per day.

We saw a spike in search traffic during the first week of August when the government shutdown took effect and the Dow plunged 800 points. After the government reopened, however, and the Dow made a few dips, search traffic didn’t pick up again until the first week of October.

The Keyword Index. This is how Google decides if you’re among the most popular searches.

The Domain Index. This is how SimilarWeb decides if a page on a domain is in the most popular searches for a keyword.

To measure search traffic for both these measures, we collected traffic for search queries. In this case, we are using Alexa to track traffic to webpages that contain “2013” in their URL. We’re not tracking the number of visits to the pages, but we are tracking the number of search queries associated with each link in the URL.

This metric is a measure of how many of the most common search queries are searched for, taken from Google. Google’s Keyword Planner analyzes the organic search trends and displays the following types of keyword searches on the SERPs:

Link Anchor: “Learn More About This Link”

Search Keywords: “Links to This Page”

Search Keyword Phrase: “Keyword Keywords”

Unique Words: “Other Keywords”

CATAMARAN BUILD – I’ve Finally Figured It Out!! (MJ Sailing – Ep 216)

You’ve been telling me to do this for months now, and I finally started listening!!
Improve your energy and gut health today –

In this video, which takes place back in early to mid November, we’re still trying to close up the boat for winter by bringing in more of our molded pieces. After having the side decks dry fit and just about ready to bond down, we still need the foredeck in place just to make sure everything is sitting as it should.

Once that is in and we know it all looks good, we get a good weather day to break out our methacrylate bonding agent. Between just Matt and I, we get to work on bonding the port deck on. And in the process, I have to admit, I finally figured out what so many of our viewers had been talking about for months, in the best way to bag our methacrylate.

We hope you enjoy!

Much love from Annapolis!

This week, we find ourselves all over the place as we jump around from one small project to the next.

First we have the side decks brought in with the help from a few of the guys around the yard, and once all the protective plastic is removed, it makes such a difference in the look of the boat.

We also bond in the shower pan for our master bath. A step that is necessary before we can begin any of the structural webbing which sits above it.

Then, just for a bit of fun, Matt and I take a drive through the eastern shore with our friend Tucker to get a Christmas tree for the marina office. The options we have to choose from are not spectacular – but in the end I think we made it look pretty nice.

We hope you enjoy!

Much love from Annapolis!

CATAMARAN BUILD – Dusty & BRUISED … But the Cockpit Seats are Bonded!! (MJ Sailing – Ep 214)

My arms have gotten bruised and banged up from all our test fits with the cockpit seats – but now it’s time to permanently bond them down!

We start the episode responding to a popular question of “When are the engines going in?” Then Matt does some trimming to our swim step, which will eventually let us get in to glass that area from the inside.

We get a very nice care package from Total Boat – AND THEN – it’s time to bond the seats in!! After a week of trimming, adjusting, and sanding; I come away a little bruised, but still in high spirits. Plus, we’ve gotten ourselves into such a rhythm during practice that we’re able to bond both seats in just over an hour!

Tune in and enjoy – and make sure to leave your comments below!

CATAMARAN BUILD – We Bring In the Cockpit Seats! (MJ Sailing – Ep 213)

In this week’s episode, we want to keep rolling with getting as many of our molded pieces in as possible, to try and get the boat to a lockup stage before winter. After looking back to a few weeks ago when we began work on the water tanks, we then jump back to when the transom is adhered – and the next thing to do is bring in the cockpit seats!

With the help of Kentmorr Marina’s finest, we manage to get them inside the tent and on deck. But, because we made changes to our boat after the transom had been molded, we need to do some trimming to get these seats fitting as they should.

Tune in and Matt will tell you all about it. Enjoy!!

Much love from Annapolis!
