The D&D vs. Pathfinder comparison is pretty deeply flawed, because it excludes any searches for D&D that don't include an edition. For example:
Insight search shows that D&D, dnd, "Dungeons and Dragons", and "Dungeons Dragons" all, individually, dwarf Pathfinder in the RPG category.

We should all skew the stats by searching for "6E D&D" and "Sixth Edition" a hundred times a day during the month of July.

I wonder if the fact that Pathfinder has all the rules online for free is a factor in this data.
For example, when I don't know something like how prone works, or the description of a spe, or I want to check out a class etc for pathfinder I search for that info online with a search like "Sleep Pathfinder" and bingo, I get the full spell description.
I would never do that with 4e as I know I can't find that information online.

Google Statistics by Edition
This was an interesting read.
Google Statistics on the Edition Wars: D&D & Pathfinder | Awesome Dice Blog
The long and short of it is this graph:
3.5 shows a steady decline in searches until just after the release of 4th. Then it begins to rise in number of searches.
4th Spikes with it's release in `08, then holds steady for the next four years
Pathfinder spikes with it's release in `09, then shows steady growth.
I've no clue if Awesome Dice has an ax to grind or not. I just found the data interesting.
