Google Page Rankings
Posted on June 20, 2006
I’ve been in one of those “whats the point” ruts. At some point so much piles up on the TODO list that you spend more time manageing that list than taking things off it. When the work grows unpropotional to appreciation at some point you hit that “no one cares, whats the point” rut, that I’m in now. Sometimes Google can provide some comfort, so I thought I’d do a quick check of some of my page rankings. Here’s what I found.
Google Ranking as of 6/20/06: Term First Ranking iscsi 16 iscsi linux 2 iscsi rhel 2 iscsi target 10 iscsi solaris 11 solaris - opensolaris 58 vxvm 1 Veritas Volume Manager 8 snmp 98 snmp ruby 5 snmp perl 3 snmp netapp 4 netapp 62 netapp monitoring 3 netapp iscsi 5 3par 19 RHEL sucks 2 red hat sucks 4 enlightenment - enlightenment solaris 1 enlightenment linux - enlightenment irix 13 edje 10 RRDtool 20 Oracle - Oracle Solaris - Oracle OpenSolaris 36 Guide to Oracle 5 [ - indicates ranking is >100 ]
So I guess, based on this, I should be pushing even more on iSCSI, since thats my nitch. I’ve clearly got VxVM covered. I doubt that 3Par likes my ranking of 19… especially given that its not the most flattering review. I’m proud of my #2 for “RHEL Sucks”.
To be clear, these rankings are based on cuddletech’s ranking, not mine. In many cases sites that I manage or articles that mention me are even higher than the cuddletech ranking.
The two most common names I saw in the rankings besides my own were Phil Brown’s BoltHole.com and Mark Mayo’s VMUNIX Blues. So I should either respect these guys immensely as comrads or kill them for their ranking…. but both of them are amazing guys and really kool, so I suppose I’ll have to let them live. When I get my LDAP stuff done I’ll really finally give BoltHole a run for the money… except of course that neither Phil or myself get anything for our resources. Oh well. Thankfully we both have really really understanding and wonderful wives.
