My website and blog don’t show up for a lot of search terms on Google or Yahoo. However, the few that I feel should work are my first and last names and the blog name.

Also see update below.

So I went ahead and searched and analyzed some results on various search engines I use. Results are below …
Before I forget … a very critical discovery … MSN searches gave pages a higher priority. Yahoo searches gave Geocities pages a higher priority (Yahoo owns Geocities)… thats scary! These pages show up on the 10 results of the parent search engine. But not on the first 3-5 pages of any other search engines!!! Crazy!

Anyways, continuing …The search results are tabulated in the following page … click on to view them all …

Overall … search results suck when they are not what you want them to be.

Update: These results come close on the heels of Arwind Anomalizer‘s review of how the new name is better for his personal branding on the web. But he’s got a decent deal with the anomalizer thingy … wtf do I do with Logic2Go? Imagine I show up at his engagement some event and he has to introduce me as “This is my dear friend logic2go” sounds like I’m his C-3PO.
