Finding new browser games is a challenge. Anyone who’s seen my website knows I was a massive Travian addict. The sheer volume of players looking for Travian cheats on my website is astounding. However, once you get bored of farming in Travian and it’s time to find a new game what else is there?

Well to follow up on Olivers interesting post on top games according to Alexa, I made a list of the top 28 games according to Google. Google has a keyword tool that displays monthly global traffic for a keyword. I made a list of 40 browser games and then ranked them according to the number of searches each game gets monthly. The results were shocking! A “crappy” looking penguin Disney game is the only game that comes close to Travian in popularity. Evony blankets the Internet with advertisements, but the actual number of people searching for Evony is surprisingly low.
