Shutterstock's top 100 searches

Shutterstock posts a page that shows top 100 searches (ever). It's located at top 100 searches.
I am curious in these keywords but numbers of searches are not shown. I think it would be very interesting to see actual numbers of searches as a 2nd place keyword could just be a few hundred searches behind the 1st place keyword. It would be more interesting to see actual numbers.
I am so curious, I think I will email Shutterstock and ask if they could post actual numbers. I will go and email them right now.

Tetris

Tetris is a classic puzzle game.  I don't know how many people searches for the term "Tetris" per day on Google.   No one seems to know about "Tetris Partner", a tetris fan game i have created for 2 players to play cooperatively.

If you search for "Tetris Partner" on google, my link is 4th on the search result list so it's that's pretty good, my guess is no one is actually searching for "Tetris Partner".

This post is to introduce people to "Tetris Partner", hopefully more people will come across it and enjoy the game.

You can download the game or see more details about it at Tetris Partner
