We counted how many "Seven Wonders of the World" there are. Here's What We Found.

Many have heard about the Seven Wonders of the World, but has anyone ever stopped to count how many there are? It all changes today, when we put together a team of expert researchers to find out and count how many wonders there really are in the Seven Wonders of the World. Our findings are posted at the bottom of this page, but if you want to know how we thoroughly conducted our investigation, feel free to read the entire article.

How the research was done

1) Our first step was to perform a Google search of the "Seven Wonders of the World". Instantly, Google displayed some cool images and names at the top of the page:

This is where we started counting. We were able to count all the preview cards above and were able to make our initial theory: There are 7 Seven Wonders of the World. As it was tough to copy and paste (since they are clickable cards, we couldn’t highlight the text easily to copy and paste it) the names from the preview cards to this article, we will leave out the actual names of the Wonders of the World.

2) Our next step was to find information that support our theory. We decided to perform a Bing search this time.

What we found was absolutely shocking. On Bing’s preview card for “Seven Wonders of the World”, we only counted 6. You can count for yourself in the adjacent image. This was disturbing news, as our team thought “Is Google a Liar?”. We were devastated that we had to dig deeper and do more work. Time to move on to further research.

3) We then decided to call the American Historical Association to ask an expert. Here’s how it went:

The Conversation

“Hi, American Historical Assocation”

          Our Lead Investigator: “Hi, I have a quick question about a                 research article I’m writing. I was wondering if you can help               answer a question?”

“Depends what it is”

            Our Lead Investigator: “How many wonders of the world are             there?”

“How many what?”

            Our Lead Invesigator: “How many wonders of the world are               there?”

“Off the top of my head, I don’t know that. I would recommend looking that up online.”

            Our Lead Investigator: “Oh, okay. Thank you”

“Hi, American Historical Assocation”

Our Lead Investigator: “Hi, I have a quick question about a research article I’m writing. I was wondering if you can help answer a question?”

“Depends what it is”

 Our Lead Investigator: “How many wonders of the world are there?”

“How many what?”

Our Lead Invesigator: “How many wonders of the world are there?”

“Off the top of my head, I don’t know that. I would recommend looking that up online.”

Our Lead Investigator: “Oh, okay. Thank you”

            Our Lead Investigator: “How many wonders of the world are there?”

“Off the top of my head, I don’t know that. I would recommend looking that up online.”

            Our Lead Investigator: “Oh, okay. Thank you”

4) Since we were advised to look online for the answer, we tried one last time. This time, using Yahoo!'s search engine:

We had an amazing realization. The word “seven” was everywhere, which could only mean one thing: Most likely, there are 7 “Seven Wonders of the World”.

What We Found

After minutes and minutes of research, our team has finally figured it out. Not only that, we have also counted every one of the Seven Wonders of the World so you don't have to. We can now safely say that there are indeed 7 “Seven Wonders of the World”.
