Strange Google Droppings

Google seems to have deemed Checksum Arcanius unworthy. As a result, this site is no longer #1 in a search for “Arcanius” (as mentioned earlier). That alone was not too disconcerting to me (although I was not particularly happy either). What did begin to concern me, however, was when I googled for Titan Robotics, as I sometimes do, and Arcanius was nowhere to be found on the first page. Just a month ago, I remember my site being second in that list. Now, a fellow silverfir.net’er, The Deliverator, has taken up that spot. And I have nothing against The Deliverator (heck I like him, and read his blog, and hang out with him fairly often), but why did I lose the spot? What is going on here?

My search for an answer led me to this interesting article on slate. Ok, it’s silly (and scary) to even think about regulating Google. People who have suggested need to go and choke on a slurpie or something. Seriously, government is not a solution. It is a problem that can, when used in extreme moderation, solve a few worse problems. But moving right along, the article, while interesting, didn’t really answer my question. Clearly, Google has judged this site unworthy. But why? That is the rub.

    Now that’s some Libertarian thinking that I would call sound.

    Google sometimes has shifts in its indexing. For a short while, I was no longer the most important Chris Vincent to Google, but I just slapped the bitch into submission waited for a few weeks and regained my position.

    with respect to you and deliverator swapping lead positions, I think that you will find the answer in the number of incomming links that each of your sites sports. According to blogshares, you have 12 incomming links and deliverator has 21.
