Anyone finding that the word count on a page is having an effect on rankings?
@tedster - regarding the Chitika study - the author (in the comments) mentioned "we didnít look at sponsored links at all. All traffic in this study is purely organic." One thing that I've thought about is that maybe the drop in % of clicks on the #1 spot in the study, compared to the AOL data (2006), could be due to Wikipedia pages showing up at #1 a lot of the time. I've experienced more than a few complaints about that over the last year - last one was: "if I wanted to read info on Wikipedia's site, I would have gone there first".
