Real Estate and Sex

From John Mauldin’s (excellent) weekly email letter on finance and investing:

…if you go to Google and type in sex you get 78,000,000 hits. If you type in real estate you get 110,000,000 hits, which makes housing about 40% more interesting than sex. Is there a greater sign of a bubble?

  1. Don’t buy it. Translate the words into French and you get 4 times the number of hits in the other direction. Next he can tell us why television gets more hits than sex in America too.

    Misleading for two reasons:
    - Google results are filtered for certain terms like “sex”
    - Estimates of matching pages are not very accurate on Google (note the precision is 3 digits)
