A Google Fight is not a fair fight


At least, that's according to my colleague, Rick Wicklin.  In a recent blog post, Rick points out that estimating popularity based on results of Google searches is a bad idea.

Well, that just disqualified my claim that PROC REPORT is more popular than PROC TABULATE, as measured via a GoogleFight.

I'm not sure that I agree.  What do you say, Rick? You wanna take this outside?
