Google now puts my Facebook

2015-03-18 01:40:03.255705+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Google now puts my Facebook, Twitter, and another Dan Lyke's LinkedIn profile above my personal page. Search is dying.

For me it's LinkedIn, Flickr, Wikipedia, me, twitter, Amazon (my author page), a w3c mailing list archive, and then random crap.

If you kill your facebook account (but perhaps you also need to delete all the content on there as I did, which took MONTHS of jiggery-clickery), that will disappear from the searches.

The trend I see is the internet, for many many people, is one to 6 places. 1 is usually Facebook.

This might become a good thing as the wild internet becomes a place for more interesting people again. Sadly, many interesting people are afraid to post the more interesting thought provoking things.

I did a search for Dan Lyke, and the top three links are: Flutterby, Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin. I did a search on my name, and I don't even show up on the first page of results (I am on the second page, but not the first link---there's this actor that sucks up most of the results).
