Slash Fandom Comparisons:

Data from 9/25-26/00, by number of hits

I gathered these data by searching on Google. Details below.

This table displays only fandoms that got more than 200 slash hits. I have an alphabetical list of fandoms that didn't make the cut this time. I also have a list of fandoms by total hits.

I was unable to come up with a satisfactory search strategy for several fandoms with excessively normal names: Friends, Emergency, and Oz. I suspect that the total number for ER is inflated by spurious hits, as well. If anyone can come up with a good search strategy for these series, please email me.

I ran two searches on each fandom:

"fan fiction" [fandom name]
and
"fan fiction" [fandom name] slash

For anime and manga fandoms I ran two additional searches:

"fan fiction" [fandom name] yaoi
and
"fan fiction" [fandom name] slash yaoi
In these fandoms, the number in the slash column is actually slash + yaoi - (slash+yaoi).

In Xena f/f is often called "alt". The number in the slash column is actually slash + alt - (slash+alt).
