Ageing Tips.

During the last week of March 2012 the Digital Methods Initiative held the EMAPS workshop “ Ageing Places” at the University of Amsterdam. The workshop was designed to provide a space for Amsterdam-based researchers and motivated students to explore together the issue of Europe’s ageing population and how it is being distributed, formatted, framed and diversified across cultural, institutional and geographical borders.

One of the projects advanced during the workshop week was Ageing tips.


Researchers queried the term “ageing tips” (and its equivalents in different languages) in the national search engines for: Spain, The Netherlands, Poland, UK, Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Hungary and Turkey . During the process each of the researchers were logged out of Google, and turned of Web history and personalization. For each country the top five collections of tips (as usually tips are formatted as lists of numbered suggestions) were collected and then run trough a tag cloud engine. The engine output for each set of collections accounted for the most frequent terms used; which could also be understood as representing the most frequently suggested ageing tips per country.
