Comments: Kraus Celebre

I've been watching "Allen Kraus" search results over the last day (for lack of having paint drying around to watch). His page has now slipped to 30 in el Goog. I figured that all he needed was S-E-Orientation to get on the map. Maybe he needs to put his name in the TITLE of his web page.

Still, there's the question of whether a Times search page should be in Google-- since, after all, Matt Cutts said Google doesn't want 'em. (see the fourth link here)

Meanwhile, another outbreak arm farting. All of this raises the question: why isn't this man's piercing analytical skills being employed by the national intelligence community?

Jon: It's possible that the Times search page will rank lower in the future. What Matt said is presumably general goals, but doesn't give any guidance to how strictly Google will apply them, and in what timeframe.

That's a plausible explanation. You'll notice in my post above another outbreak syntax errors. :-)
