Popular pages on this forum, as seen by Google...

Unread post by xantia_v6 »

The forum admins have access to statistics on Google searches involving this site. There is lots of data, some of it useful, and some a little strange...

Here is a little sampler, the following are the most clicked links (to this site) in google searches in the last 30 days, each getting well over 1000 clicks:
Got a depollution system faulty warning is it safe to keep driving for a day or two?
Particle Filter Additive Level too low
C4 heater/air con not working
Risk of particle filter clogging
Just how "bad" is the EGS Gearbox?
Do those statistics say anything about modern cars?

And at about number 100 in the ranking of clicks, but consistently about 25th in the number of times it appeared in search results:
Feu Orange king of air freshners?
I think this might say more about Google than anything else.

Are the top ones due mainly to the naming of the thread title, like

Got a depollution system faulty warning is it safe to keep driving for a day or two?

Where literally "depollution system faulty" is the message displayed when a fault occurs on the vehicle. The thread only has 12 replies and views of 15,000 ish and has been going since 2016

Putting "depollution system faulty" into a duckduckgo query pulls up that post on the FCF as about 14th on the results list.

Nice to see that one of my trivial OTCL threads provokes the odd click :-D
