Cameron Not Outstripping Labour Rivals on the Web

Despite David Cameron's recent push into blogging, he is not much more popular than Gordon Brown among web users. Information on search request volumes from Google Trends™ shows that Cameron and Brown register a fairly equal number. This should come as a bit of a blow for the Cameron camp after all the time and effort spent on building his online profile.

The real surprise from the numbers is that John Reid is right up there alongside the two of them and witnessed something of a spike over the summer. The bad news for Alan Johnson is that he is a distant third, reflecting his lower domestic and international profile.

The link to this trend comparison is here and you can find out more about Google Trends™ here.

I'm not surprised by this at all. Cameron is a false little wanker. There's nothing to search because there's no substance to him.

I hope that the next election isn't won or loss on name recognition. I don't think this graph tells you much at all.
