When I can't speak, I write...
somehow for me, both are same :)
hehe...i doubt i would find even one match for my name :)
Search engines do not give results on popularity, do they?? Searching a pen name is easier since it has many linked pages...your own name may or may not fetch any results...
yaah why not? many people made big with their pennames like many poets do!!!
Interestingly my real name and pen name show the same number of results in Google search.
Was that one result actually your name?
i don't know about popular, maybe more common !
reg ur TAMIL post, is it only MAdhavan's movies you want to see ? Vikram, Vijay , Rajnikanth ... and of course Surya movies !
I don't think my site even pop up even if i type in my name!
lolz !!!may be i could try this & see my search results :)
just read your articleonce again i searched my real name and found thisAbout 369,000 results (0.17 seconds) and for sm About 169,000,000 results (0.24 seconds) thanks
My pen name shows a lot more because I used it for much longer than my real name :)
depends on the pen-name chosen/original name :)

My pen name shows 1800 results in google and a lot of it is unrelated to me, I guess nine from ten. My real name shows double the amount and I KNOW that 19 from 20 are unrelated to me.
Chandrika,If you write under pseudo name and you are read by many, that is the one which people recognize. Take care
Well, pen makes the pen name popular..
ya ... right
Somehow my friend... but i think one is enough... too many pen names just make the readers feel annoyed and confused...!:)Have a good day!:)>Kelvin
Ha ha....at times our pseudo self is more popular than the real self (though both are a part of the real) :)
I am one of the lucky few, I guess, who gets a whole load of links when I type my name in Google! I really do not have an answer to your question, but I guess the pen name is popular because that is what an author uses to identify himself/herself to the rest of the world.
@ everyone : Thanks for sharing ur views about pen name and real name. I enjoyed reading all the comments. I once again thank u all from the bottom of my heart.
