Out-polling the Guardian UK!?! [May. 16th, 2010|06:32 pm]
Young Geoffrey
[Tags|, , , , , ]

Edit @ 2306 hours Eastern time: Turns out I fell victim to either Google or my browser personalizing my results. Thanks to (or should that read "thanks"?) Livejournal's mijopo for pointing out my nakedness. Ah well, my unexpected fame was fun while it lasted.

Non-plussed (but frankly rather pleased)

Doing the narcissistic statistical analysis of recent hits at Edifice Rex Online led me to follow a link to a Google search of the phrase doctor who flesh and stone (no quotation marks).

Apparently, my thoughts on the venerable program are more popular than those of a major British newspaper.

More than a little to my amazement, my review of the episode showed up on the number two spot at google.com, while The Guardian's came in at number three. (Google.ca had me at the same position, but The Guardian was in 10th spot.

Seems a little difficult to believe that my humble organ's pensés on Doctor Who are out-polling those of one of Britain's major newspapers, but Google wouldn't lie to me, would it?

I really think it's about time publishers started sending me ARCs.

Hmm, doesn't come up that high on mine, maybe it uses regions or may it have personalized your results?

Hmm ...

Well bugger me - you're absolutely right. At least, it doesn't come up nearly so high when I tried it with Opera.

That's for showing me, man; who do you think you are, the Flyers!
