Top Of The Google Heap
from the fun-things-to-do-with-search-engines dept
It’s only a little scary to me that I know multiple people who have spent significant amounts of time trying to push up the results of a Google search of their name vs. other people with the same name. ?Now, David Gallagher has written in Business 2.0 about his quest to rise to the top of the Google heap against some teenaged TV star who happens to share the same name. ?He asked a bunch of people to point to his website and link with his name as the anchor text, and a few weeks later he moved his way up. ?The Google engineer he spoke to was not impressed saying it wasn’t a very “competitive field”. Apparently the teenaged TV star isn’t as popular as the writer David Gallagher thought. ?His next goal, though, is to become the number result for “David”. ?Now, there’s a challenge. ?Update: Completely separate from this, we’ve added a new Google related poll. ?Go vote.
