GS

In acronyms, GS, refers to “Google Search” return ranking, not to be confused with the “Genius Score” (GS) abbreviation of the Buzan IQ 835-point ranking scale, and refers to the position in Google search returns that any given Hmolpedia (2007-launched) entry falls, articles predominately written by American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims, as compared to similar online entries from: Wikipedia (2003-launch), Britannica (2007-launched), MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive (1997-launched), written by Scottish mathematicians John O’Connor and Edmund Robertson, at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, Eric Weisstein’s World of Science (2002-launched), written by American astrophysicist Eric Weisstein, The Information Philosopher (2004-launched), written by American physicist Robert Doyle, among other noted online encyclopedias.

Name | Examples
For niche names, such as Leon Winiarski (GS:2), Hmolpedia ranks high (9 Apr 2014):

1. Leon Winiarski – Wikipedia.
2. Leon WiniarskiHmolpedia.

Likewise, a Google query for Willard Gibbs (GS:2) yields:

1. Josiah Willard Gibbs – Wikipedia.
2. Willard GibbsHmolpedia.
3. J. Willard Gibbs (American scientist) – Britannica.
4. Josiah Willard Gibbs (1839-1903) – AIP.org.
5. J. Willard Gibbs – APS.org.
6. Gibbs summary – MacTutor History of Mathematics, University of St. Andrews.
7. Gibbs biography – MacTutor History of Mathematics, University of St. Andrews.
8. Josiah Willard Gibbs – Wikiquote.
9. J. Willard Gibbs – Engines of Our Ingenuity.
10. Josiah Willard Gibbs Lectures – AMS.org.

A Google query for Rudolf Clausius (GS:5) yields the following return positions:

1. Rudolf Clausius – Wikipedia.
2. Rudolf Clausius – MacTutor History of Mathematics, University of St. Andrews.
3. Rudolf Clausius – Britannica.
4. Clausius, Rudolf (1822-1888) – Eric Weisstein’s World of Scientific Biography.
5. Rudolf ClausiusHmolpedia.

A Google query for Leon Brillouin (GS:9) yields the following return positions:

1. Leon Brillouin – Wikipedia.
2. Leon Brillouin – The Information Philosopher.
3. Brillouin, Leon (1889-1969) – Eric Weisstein’s World of Scientific Biography.
9. Leon BrillouinHmolpedia.

Google queries for modern hmolscience scholars, without a Wikipedia entry, but with an Hmolpedia page, will tend to yield top returns, such as:

1. Jeff TuhtanHmolpedia.
2. Jeffrey Tuhtan – Google Scholar Citations.
3. Jeffrey A. Tuhtan – Academia.edu.

1. Christopher HirataHmolpedia.
2. Chris Hirata – Department of Astronomy, Ohio State University.
3. Christopher Hirata – TAPIR Group, Caltech.

Entries for more popular scientists, Hmolpedia articles may tend to rank lower, take the case of Gilbert Lewis (GS:12):

1. Gilbert N. Lewis – Wikipedia.
2. Gilbert N. Lewis (American scientist) – Britannica.
3. Gilbert Newton Lewis – ChemHeritage.org.
4. Gilbert Newton Lewis – Project Nova, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
5. Gilbert Lewis – Inventor of the Week, MIT.edu.
6. Gilbert Newton Lewis – RSC.org.
7. Gilbert Newton Lewis – HumanTouchOfChemistry.com.
8. Origin of the word ‘photon’ – NoBeliefs.com.
9. Gilbert Newton Lewis (1875-1946) – About.com.
10. Gilbert N. Lewis – ChemistryExplained.com.
11. Gilbert Newton Lewis, 1875-1946 (pdf) – NASOnline.org.
12. Gilbert LewisHmolpedia.

Likewise for other popular thinkers such as: Sadi Carnot (GS:13).

For the peculiar case of Johann Goethe (GS:34), the most cited name in Hmolpedia citation rankings (CR#1:916), we find a lower ranking in Google search return ranking, largely owing to the fact that Goethe is a top 7 name in world literature, according to WorldCat Identities, hence his popularity.

Some names, such as Max Planck (CR#15:215), are so popular, one has to do a double query, e.g. “Max Planck, thermodynamics” (ΡΊ) to get a GS:8 ranking, otherwise his Hmolpedia entry will not show up in the top 100 Google returns.

Term | Examples
Some Google term queries, e.g. "entropy etymology" (GS:1), returns a #1 Hmolpedia position:

1. Entropy (etymology)Hmolpedia.
2. Entropy – Online Etymology Dictionary.
3. Entropy – Wiktionary.
4. History of entropy – Wikipedia.
5. Entropy – Dictionary.com.

Though, to note, other key terms, e.g. thermodynamics (GS:58), have lower search return rankings.
