Dunno why we were inspired to do so, but last week , and myself did some Google “ego searching” and I found out that if you search for “Sean Graham” I am now the top return. This caused Adam to ask a perfectly valid question: Who the hell links to me?

If you search for:
+link:www.sean-graham.com, you will see that Scot Hacker’s log on birdhouse.org is responsible for most of the links. Every reply you make and some of Scot’s posts link to you.
Interesting… Thanks for the heads up!
I managed to get 9 of the top 10 hits. Most of them refer to mailing lists posts I’ve made over the years, but the #1 result is straight to my web site. According to the link suggestion Pat gave, comes up with 0 results. I’m not sure how that happened. :)
Actually, every slashdot post I make bears that URL. Does google take into account sites that have configured robots.txt to not allow deep link searches, but just not display them?
I’m only 3 out of the top 10, with my highest being #3. I guess Kyle Christensen is a popular name.
Sean Graham is a ridiculously popular name… :)

Gee, when I search for me, I am the one and only person that comes up. And when you search for my last name, you get a bunch of links relating to my cousin Lukasz in Poland, plus some random Russian gay guy who apparently likes my last name.
I don’t know if I should be ashamed or proud that the first ref for “Joshua Warchol” is BeBits…
I had forgotten about Beff. :)
Google puts an enormous amount of wait on pages that have your search terms in the domain name, it takes a fairly high google rank to overcome that.
Sure, but there are several other domains in the results that have the words “sean graham” in the domain, like “seangraham.com”. That site (for the largest bookie in Great Britain or Ireland or something) blew me out of the water for years.
