Notable top rankings of my web
site
pages in Google searches on their topics |

- These are my webpages which rank in the top 10 of the pages brought up on
a Google search for their topic. The search terms are as general as possible
and are given without quotation marks. Google searches are not independent of
the order of words in the search terms. For example, if one types in the
words:
*benefit cost*, my webpage on cost benefit analysis comes up as number one out of 180 million, but if the search term is*cost benefit*my webpage is number three out of 118 million.Not included in the list below are the cases in which one of my webpages turns up on the search but that it is for another topic. I also have not included the cases in which my webpage turns up within somebody else webpage, with or without attribution.

Most of my webpages are on two sites:http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/watkins/
