But pet seems to me to go both ways, like knit...So far, two votes against

   "Webidence" is not on Wordspy.com.  There isn't a trademark for it, and I didn't see it on Nexis.  Unfortunately, it wasn't coined here today.
   There are 77 Google hits, and 215 Google Groups hits.

Bruce Slater, from the United States, says that "Webidence is scientific (type
1) and pseudo-scientific (type 2) medical advice and opinion posted on a
website. The marker . . . is `sticky eyeballs,' the measuring device is the web
hit counter, and the unit is the unique hit and repeat visit count.
Unfortunately, no reputable authority exists for separating types 1 and 2."
