Default I'm Feeling Lucky: A Fun Experiment with Google


I was wondering where the “I’m Feeling Lucky” search button on Google homepage would take me if I try my luck with a country name and the word “cricket”.

It was an interesting little experiment. I search the terms in both arrangements: “country cricket” (i.e. Australia Cricket) and “cricket country” (i.e. Cricket Australia).
Here are the results:

Search Terms: “Country Cricket”

1. Australia Cricket: Goes to the official site of Cricket Australia
2. England Cricket: Goes to the official site of England and Wales Cricket Board
3. New Zealand Cricket: Goes to the official site of New Zealand Cricket
4. West Indies Cricket: Goes to the official site of West Indies Cricket Board
5. South Africa Cricket: Goes to the official site of Cricket South Africa
6. Zimbabwe Cricket: Goes to the Cricinfo country site for Zimbabwe
7. India Cricket: Goes to the Cricinfo country site for India
8. Pakistan Cricket: Goes to the Cricinfo country site for Pakistan
9. Sri Lanka Cricket: Goes to the Wikipedia site for Sri Lanka Cricket Team
10. Bangladesh Cricket: Goes to “banglacricket.com”

Search Terms: “Cricket Country”
1. Cricket Australia: Goes to the official site of Cricket Australia
2. Cricket England: Goes to a UK travel information site- “Britain Express”
3. Cricket New Zealand: Goes to the official site of New Zealand Cricket
4. Cricket West Indies: Goes to the official site of West Indies Cricket Board
5. Cricket South Africa: Goes to the official site of Cricket South Africa
6. Cricket Zimbabwe: Goes to the official site of Zimbabwe Cricket
7. Cricket India: Goes to Yahoo India sports site for cricket
8. Cricket Pakistan: Goes to the official site of Pakistan Cricket Board
9. Cricket Sri Lanka: Goes to the Wikipedia site for Sri Lanka Cricket Team
10. Cricket Bangladesh: Goes to “banglacricket.com”

Observations:
1. Bangla Cricket is the only fan site to show up in this experiment
2. Changing the order of the search terms results into different search results for England, Zimbabwe, India and Pakistan.
3. The official web sites of India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh cricket board do not show up in this country specific search, meaning these sites are not on the top of Google index.

Well, Banglacricket probably gets more hit than any other official/fan cricket website in the world, ermm, except India.

Go the BC-eits.

Btw, nice to hear from you again BB bhai.

ভালো পর্যালোচনা। আমার সবসময় মনে হয় (অন্যান্য দেশের ক্রিকেট ফ্যান ফোরাম সাইট গুলো ঘুরাঘুরি করার অভিজ্ঞতা থেকে) বাংলা ক্রিকেট ডট কম সবথেকে জীবন্ত ফোরাম।

I tried with both ''Country Cricket'' and ''Cricket Country'' with Bangladesh but sadly it goes directly to TigerCricket.com, though I would have loved BanglaCricket to be the first search, cause it has been a great pleasure for me being a member of BanglaCricket and I certainly feel proud about it.

maybe it depends where you are searching from. For example if I select

Search:
Then I get CI/bangladesh page but if I select the web it does take me to Banglacricket.com. Good find any way

perfectly put! very true auntu bhai.
thank you babubangla bhai for this research! this is indeed a very interesting thing and it further proves the fact that without BANGLACRICKET.com, there is no other entity alive (forget BCB) who sincerely protects and serves BD cricket!
thank you Allah, for creating all the souls like tehsin bhai who conceived it and put it together! Thank you Allah for BC! long live BD, BC, the tigers and good kacchi!

In other words, although we are losing most matches, হাউকাউ এখানেই সবচেয়ে বেশী।

I tried with babubangla and it takes me to some junk site called babubangla(dot)com

Banglacricket is by far the most live site for bangladesh cricket. Usually people do visit tigercricket only if there is no alternative source of finding a live score.
