Odd search engine result…

Inspired by Walt’s recent ego surfing, I decided to see what a few search engines thought of me. In doing so, I came across a really odd result….Yahoo has, as the 20th hit for the search “Jason Griffey“, a Yahoo Local page on Science and Technology.

Except that I’m not actually on the page. That is, there’s no mention of me anywhere.

Take a look for yourself.

Now, it’s true that Cowan is local…I’m just a few miles from the town. But why link me to science and technology in the area when there’s no direct textual referent?

Thoughts?

Actually, you are there. I went to your linked Yahoo! results page and clicked on the CACHED version of the 20th link. I love cached results because of the highlighting. In the cached S&T Cowan page, you’re #6, complete with your home address and phone number. It’s pulling the first few lines off of your online CV.
