Methodology

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 – Our Stern Bulkheads Need To Be PRECISE For Our Transom! (MJ Sailing – Ep 205)

Before our last two bulkheads go in, we need to make sure they sit in their EXACT place, as there is no margin of error.

Because the large transom piece we received with our second container sits as a cap over these two bulkheads, we need to make sure each edge is lining up. But because this piece is 24 ft wide and weighs over 500 pounds, it’s not easy to bring it in and out for a dry fit. So, we’re going to do our best with measurements between the two and hope for the best.

As we go to glass in bulkead 8 though, we find that our new vinyl ester resin is not behaving well in these summer temperatures, and is making it very hard for us to work. A slight set-back, but we know we’ll find a way around it to make everything work.

We hope you enjoy!

CATAMARAN BUILD – The Backbone of our Water Tanks (MJ Sailing Ep 204)

This week we step back in time and cover a few projects we did between getting the soles down – including adding the forward webbing to our bridge deck, which will eventually become our water tanks.

One of the main things, was glassing down the forward webbing on the bridge deck. Part of it is just for support, but the larger compartments, between bulkheads 4&5, will eventually be the spaces for our windlass/anchor chain, as well as our two water tanks (as far as we’re planning right now).

We also have it confirmed that a new shipment of vinyl ester resin is on its way, so we get busy working on another project which requires it, which is bonding the inner seam of where the hull sides were attached in July.

We hope you enjoy!

Much love from Annapolis!

CATAMARAN BUILD – Prepping for Floors (MJ Sailing Ep 202)

Floors under your feet just make life …. easier. So we figured it was high time we get working on ours. Before we can even think about laying them down though, there’s a number of steps we need to go through first to prep the area.

Through the plans given to us by Max Cruise Marine, we need to make 90 degree flanges, which will attach to the webbing inside each hull. Then once *those* are in place, we’ll have a larger and stronger surface to bond our floors to.

*All scenes filmed in July, 2021

We hope you enjoy!!

CATAMARAN BUILD – It May Look Seamless, But That’s Not The Case (MJ Sailing – Ep 201)

Last week you watched us bond the starboard hull side on – and the procedure looked seamless – but a lot went into it beforehand.

CATAMARAN BUILD – We Bond the Hull Sides!! (MJ Sailing – Ep 200)Wow, can you believe we are hitting episode 200??!! It seems like just a few weeks ago that I started shyly picking up a camera as we were in the middle of the aluminum boat refit – not sure what I would say or if anyone would find it worth watching. But, nearly 5 years later, here we are!! Matt and I open the tent doors and fit on the nose cones to make sure everything is still aligned when we do the dry fits of the hull sides. Once it is determined that the way we’d set it up to bond still allows us to seamlessly put the cones on – it’s time to get to work. Our friends Brian and Summer make their way over to Kent Island just after sunrise on one cool morning, and with one test run and a lot of team work, we manage to get the starboard outer hull side on just within the 40-60 minute window we have to work with our methacrylate bonding agent. One side down and one to go!! *Fitting on the nose cones – filmed on July 15 *Bonding starboard hull side – filmed on July 18 We hope you enjoy!! Much love from Annapolis! Jessica, Matt & Georgie

CATAMARAN BUILD – We’re Running Out of Supplies!! (MJ Sailing – Ep 199)

We’re building our boat with vinyl ester resin – and they’re OUT nationwide!!

This week’s video is a smattering of a few different things, trying to catch up from when we were preparing the Pacemaker to launch (late June) to starting work on the floors of the catamaran (early July).

We also give away the Viking, which was a sad day, but we show you the transformation of when we first stepped foot on her last fall, to what she looks like when we hand her over.

Plus, we run into the issue that we can not get our hands on vinyl ester resin, so we need to find other projects to keep us busy, which do not involve it. Luckily, we can do the floors in a polyester resin instead. This will be a long process that *should* keep us busy for a few weeks, and Matt explains the technical side of how all floors will be water tight spaces.

(*Painting Pacemaker – filmed on June 14
*Matt leveling floors – filmed on June 22
*Pacemaker splash date – June 27
*Handover of Viking – July 02
*Arrival of 2nd container – July 13)

Catamaran Build – OUR SECOND CONTAINER HAS ARRIVED!! (MJ Sailing – Ep 198)

The clock is running, and we have 2 hours to unload all the remaining components for our boat!! Plus, we get to do it on one of the hottest days of the year, which is quite a change from the windchills we experienced during the first container unload.

Luckily we have a few sets of extra hands with us: Patron Greg Guthman, new friend Tom Cason, and also @Taylor’stravels, who happened to be in town for a few days.

It’s so exciting to see all the moulded components for the exterior of our boat coming out, but the question is – where are we going to put it all!?

We hope you enjoy!
