Possible explanations

  • Russians never talk about cooking in blogs. [Doubtful] English uses of "Cookery" = 1,395.

  • Russians use XML, but do not use Technorati, and/or have not submitted their XML feeds to Technorati. [Marketshare/penetration problems?]

  • Technorati cannot find common Cyrillic-text for common Russian words. [Most likely]

  • The word is an ancient derivation of "cooking" "cookery", only used in classical Russian, and no longer used. [Not supported, Google hits 1.2 Million in 2005; Added: Technorati only has 10 hits in English with "cookery" and "Russian"]


  • Summary

    For searches: Google first for broad hits, Technorati second for current discussions, but no guarantees.

    Added: Unclear whether the "lack of hits" is because the term is not normally used, or whether there is an issue with Technorati searches.
