OK, I admit it. I did a vanity search on my name. Yes, its tacky. It turns out that as of today, January 31, 2006, my site is currently the top search result on Yahoo Search when you search for my name. This is no small feat, it would seem to me, being that my name is a pretty boring and common name. On Google, I’m no where to be found unless you add my middle initial to the search, in which case my Resume page pulls top billing.
Google gets all the press about how good a search engine it is, and I’m not denying that it is excellent, but I do have to say that on several occasions, I’ve searched on Yahoo and found things that I could not easily find on Google. Folks, don’t discount Yahoo Search.
