The Unbuntu SEO Experiment

Posted by jun auza On 6/22/2010
The Unbuntu SEO Experiment: Since Ubuntu is without doubt the most popular Linux distribution at the moment, a lot of people are making search queries about it using keywords like ubuntu forums, install ubuntu, ubuntu howto, etc. However, there are also plenty of people who are making mistakes while searching for Ubuntu. --They sometimes misspelled or mistyped the word ubuntu and use keywords like unbuntu, ubunto, ubundu, and others.

The graph below from Google Trends shows the volume of searches for unbuntu when compared to sabayon.

Sabayon is perhaps one of the top 10 most well known Linux distributions today, so it is quite interesting to see its search volume almost equal to that of a mistyped distro name. --I'm certain that it's misspelled since there is no such word as unbuntu or a Linux distro with that particular name.

This is why I'm having a little SEO (Search Engine Optimization) experiment to find out how many people will land on this post through search engine by typing the keyword unbuntu instead of ubuntu, and then to guide them to the proper website that they are looking for.

Now if you landed on this page because you made a mistake and searched for unbuntu instead of ubuntu (which also means my Unbuntu SEO experiment is working), you should probably go HERE :-)
