Ego-surfing, 2001 style!

10 October 2008 · Estimated reading time: 1 minutes

In honor of their 10th anniversary, Google have made available search as it was in 2001 (love the exclamation point on the logo, guys!).

So, I did what probably 90% of people did upon hearing this news: I Googled my name!

On the 2001 web, I came up #2 out of the 22,400 results. That compares to now where I come up #1 out of 1,090,000 results.

I’m pretty sure I didn’t author those additional 1,067,600 pages. Where did they all come from?
