Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When googling a topic, there are [x] number of results. Logically, these are the number of results tagged with the keyword/s.

Does this link with the popularity of a tag, in the sense of the degree of interest in a tag (or number of user queries) or is it just a reflection of the number of links associated with the tag?
Is there a relationship between the two?

I am not sure if this is on topic, if it is not, can anyone suggest where it may be on topic on Stack Exchange? ty –  user53155 Nov 14 '13 at 3:02
Web Applications covers google, what you want to read about is SEO support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35291?hl=en –  50-3 Nov 14 '13 at 3:10
The question is somewhat fuzzy, but maybe you're looking for PageRank, which is one of the main algorithms Google uses to sort and present to you the results. –  Doktoro Reichard Nov 14 '13 at 3:26
@DoktoroReichard I am wondering if there is a relationship between the popularity with which a tag is used to searched.. It is more an analysis of it, rather than an explanation –  user53155 Nov 14 '13 at 3:30
I am not understanding your terms. Google doesn't use any "tag"-ing technology I'm aware of. I recommend you try to clear some of those terms, while this is being migrated. –  Doktoro Reichard Nov 14 '13 at 3:32
