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.

In a beautiful piece of irony both Larry & Sergey are pushed from the top spot by Wikipedia entries.
