Google Funny Business

In between garlic burps, Yaxlich had a look at his Site Meter statistics. He saw that someone visited his blog by typing Yaxlich into Google. This seems like a fairly acceptable way of finding his blog, he thought.

When he followed the link, though, his gast was flabbered when he noticed:

1) There are 25,800 results for the search phrase Yaxlich. When he started his blog there were precisely zero results. Where did they all come from?
2) Nescafe is Number One in the search results!

Yaxlich has put a picture of a jar of Nescafe on his blog but, as far as he can see, Nescafe haven't reciprocated so how come they're Number One?

Maybe because Yaxlich doesn't have a picture that Nescafe can use on their blog?

Or one at all for that matter....

Richard might have a point although Yaxlich is still very confused how Nescafe got to Number One without ever mentioning Yaxlich's name. Ever.

Yaxlich is number one and two on Google Australia, whilst Nescafe is only third. This means that in Australia, Yaxlich is more important than Nestle.

The same thing in Google Deutschland: Yaxlich is Number One and Two, Nescafe is Number Three. Oh and: 25300 results for Yaxlich in Google DE...


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (2:07 pm) : 

Yaxlich likes the good doctor because they say he's more important than Nestle. This makes him feel very special.

Yaxlich wonders where the other 500 results have gone in Germany. Then again, the German version of Google is likely to be far more efficient.

Yea, it's either that or they lost you a few hundred times...

Google NZ knows you are #1.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (2:03 pm) : 

YAY! Yaxlich is Number One in New Zealand!!
