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.
