When you go to the page http://www.catalumni.com/Reunion/Reunions.aspx , and turn to "Class of 70 35th Reunion on 19 November 2005," you notice that the names Coonal Kadam and Mark Jayaprasanna both appear on the page. This page appears in the Yahoo!, Bing and Lycos search listings for Coonal Kadam but not for Mark Jayaprasanna. Neither of these individuals has anything to do with the Cathedral and John Connon School Alumni Association!
The ranking, in ascending order, of the mean over sites of the number of pages for each search term is:
|Zenith Bank||Coonal Kadam||Mark Jayaprasanna||Jim Ovia||Ban Ki-moon||Godwin Emefiele|
Every individual search engine considered gives the same ranking, except for Bing, which lists Coonal Kadam as 1 and Mark Jayaprasanna as 2. This is possibly because of differences in the minimum PageRank considered by the search engines. It would be pointless to attempt any further statistical analysis, since the linear correlation between the various search engine outputs obviously is poor.
