The search volume for Debian has been continuously decreasing in the

I'm having trouble following this logic. Many years ago I found the
Debian website. I can now easily type http://www.Debian.org into my
browser's URL prompt and get there without using a search engine. I also
know the URLs of several other Debian related sites off the top of my
head. Of course, I'm kinda strange. I remember most of the URLs I use
regularly. I hear many people like to use these things called bookmarks.
If I'm having trouble figuring out how to do something on my Debian box
and can't find the answer on Debian-Administration.org I'll turn to my
favorite search engine, but I don't find the need to do that very often.
Even though I'm not searching for the term Debian regularly, I'm using
