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?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

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

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

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
