Vanity searching

For years now I have watched where my first name is placed on the Google index. Yes it’s vain, but it also gives me an insight into Google’s indexing methods. Earlier this year during a Google Dance, I was completely dropped from the index for 3 weeks, for no apparent reason.

It has returned, and now when searching for ‘Gavin‘ on Google.com I am placed at number three, while over on Google.ie I am now placed at number two.

At least I’m now higher than Gavin Friday. Who’d have thought that possible?

  1. Um, I looked, and it appears you’re fifth in google.com and Gavin Friday’s third. If you search google.ie however, you’re second and he’s fourth.
