A possible explanation is that 1- these were published at least five or six years before your philosophy papers; 2- the time it takes for a philosophy paper to be read by half of those who will read it (its "half life") is quite long (around 25 years), and it is much shorter in computer science; 3- the number of times a paper is cited per year does not increase linearly as years increase; 4- there are considerably more people and publications in CS than in philosophy; 5- Google Scholar has done a better job at indexing CS journals than philosophy journals thus far.
