Why is Wikipedia Always on Top

Many SEOs argue that Wikipedia receives too much attention in Google’s search results.
A 2012 study revealed that Wikipedia articles rank for 99% of all googled terms. For more than in half of them Wikipedia is the number one search result.

Moonsearch’s analysis of Google’s search results reveals the Search Engine’s perception of Internet. It’s not that of a teenager looking for entertainment, a small entrepreneur, or of a money-crazed blackhat SEO-warrior. It’s closer to an old-fashioned, scientific view of the Web (free sharing of highly validated information), than to today’s content-for-profit Internet. Although being one of the most high-profit companies because of its advertising and other businesses, in its organic Search output Google apparently benefits Wikipedia. Some call it an unfair bias from Google towards Wikipedia.

Top by MoonRank

Journalists often ask us why did we create yet another domain ranking system if Google’s Pagerank, Amazon’s Alexa Rank, and a number of other well-known ranking tools already exist.

In its domain analysis Moonsearch does provide PageRank and Alexa data, but the idea behind MoonRank is different — it allows you to measure a domain’s popularity without checking its stats across multiple ranking systems.

Newest/Oldest Domains

Our team is excited to announce a new module we’ve added to the Moonsearch engine. We have studied gathering and classifying domain registration data in a handy way and put it into Top Domains rating.
If it doesn’t sound special first, but just think of the magnitude: we are going to collect, analyse, and provide the data on every single domain’s age, in every single domain zone, and will put the gathered information in an easy-to-use rating available to every Internet user for free.

Expiration Date on MoonSearch

There are domains out there in the Web that are going to expire in a hundred years. There are also some expiring right as you read this. Some of those can have names, history, or longevity that your business might want to posses, if they see that their current owners aren’t going to renew them.

So, to provide you with information on all the domains closest/furthest from their expiration date, the Moonsearch team presents its new Domain Expiration Ranking, which will help you quickly see which domains are closest to their expiration date.

Top Registrars

Greetings, fellow web-explorers!

Our domain analysis tool has just received a new update. From now on Moonsearch provides data about domain registrars gathered into a handy Top Registrars Ranking.

With it, you can find information about most registrars in the Internet, and about the registrar of any site you analyze with Moonsearch. Our team’s goal is to get to the point when we’ll be able to provide data on every registrar on the Web and gather it under Moonsearch’s “Top Registrars” ranking, which is built according to the number of domains registered by each of the registrars and by the corresponding market share they own.
