The mysteries of Google

So, I understand google improved their search algorithm to cut down on “content farms” and such, but somehow they are over-rating my blog.  Not that I should complain.  Still, surprising to see that a post I off-handedly did last night about Kate not being a princess brought in a surprising amount of traffic.  Search for: why Kate is not a princess, and my post is somehow the #2 hit.  No sign of Yglesias, from whom I took all the material.  It’s also well ahead of the Post’s royal wedding blog.  Just weird.

    I retweeted your post, and already saw two other people that I follow/am followed by pass it along.
    I’ll take partial credit for the increased traffic flow today!
