Someone has offered Jeff $200 for calebwong.com. I told Jeff to make a counter-offer of $10000. Yes, I know itâ€™s only a parked site now, but there will be content on that site soon enough, when I ever get the time to put stuff up. Unless that sucker actually buys it for 10 grand.
I did a search on Google again for Caleb Wong. These results keep jumping back and forth. Last I checked he was on the first page. And now? Heâ€™s on the third page. What kind of shenanigans is Google pulling off here? You guys own me. My mail goes through you. My calendar, rss reader, search. And now you even own my phone. And you drop my son to page number 3? Below fools like this and this? You telling me my 17 month old sonâ€™s web presence isnâ€™t greater than this? I must correct this.
At least Microsoft has it right by putting Caleb #1 on their search engine. Get it right, Google.
I posted a few months ago about Google not having "Caleb Wong" on the first searched page. He was on the third page, which wasn’t bad at the time, but it should have been better. Well after a few months, our "hard" work has paid off. Caleb Wong is now on the first page. Caleb is on the bottom of the first page, so we still have more to do. I want this site #1 on the results. I want people to hit "I’m feeling lucky" button and go to Caleb’s site. I believe this will be a worthwhile goal.
Other search engines are doing well too. Yahoo has Caleb listed number 2. Live has this site on the first page as well, but it is on the bottom. Of course Live has got some strange results. Some of you know the Jeff registered calebwong.com and calebwong.org several months ago for Caleb’s birthday. That’s great and all, but there’s no content up there yet. They’re just parked sites now. Well, Live search results have calebwong.org and calebwong.com #1 and #4 search result. Hello! They’re just parked sites. Hopefully we can get some content on them soon, but there’s nothing on them now.
So yeah. Avoid Live.com even if they do pay you to use their search engine. These results aren’t promising.
