I just discovered that my site is no longer the first thing that comes up when you type in my first and last name. It turns out that some dude in India has his name on some Nigerian spam web site as the first thing in Google. The closest thing to my site is mentioned on the third page as a reference from a friendâ€™s site. It doesnâ€™t even appear on MSNâ€™s new search engine. But references to me appear on the first three hits for Yahooâ€™s search engine, and part of my site has been crawled by it.
I realize that Google crawls the web to find listings, but it turns out that most of the stuff on my site has not been hit yet. Iâ€™d think that it has something to do with my folder structure, but Iâ€™ve found pages inside folders on other web sites.
I also understand that I havenâ€™t been very diligent about keeping the site fresh. I expect to start putting more on the site.
Well, at least I had my fifteen minutes of fame on Google. I have to thank Yahoo for having some links to my site.
