Dave is trying to rank for the term “Dave” on Google and I thought it would be interesting to see where all the other blogs I read ranked for their owners names on Google. Surprisingly most of them were nowhere to be seen but some had first page rankings and a couple even stole the top spot.
Patrick – 5th of 167,000,000 results (keywords not in title tag)
Dave – 2nd or 287,000,000 results (keyword in title tag)
Rand – 5th of 67,900,000 results (keyword in title tag)
Matt – 3rd out of 164,000,000 results (keywords in title tag)
Joost – 22nd out of just 6,260,000 results thanks to a TV station
Loren – 9th out of 13,800,000 results.
Jennifer – 7th out of 147,000,000 results.
Darren – 4th out of 28,200,000
Jeremy – 8th out of 64,400,000 results
Maki – 6th out of 1,590,000 results
Aaron – 3rd out of 72,600,000 results
Keemo – 3rd out of 96,100
Andy – 16th out of 137,000,000 results
Vanessa – 1st out of 49,400,000 results
Danny – 1st out of 76,600,000 results.
In a beautiful piece of irony both Larry & Sergey are pushed from the top spot by Wikipedia entries.
