I think you misunderstood my message, likely because of my misuse of 
the word "hits" when I should have instead used the phrase "search 
results."  I was not in any way referring to web traffic. I was 
referring to the ratio of search results for the word "flower" to the 
word "bloom" when using the search function within the Kew or PBS 
Wiki. However, your interpretation of my poor word choice does 
provide an example of why choosing the correct word or phrase 
matters, e.g. flower vs. bloom.
