Googling Robert "Scoble"
Everyone has probably tried Googling his or her full name, but what does it mean when you Google your first name and you turn up on the number one spot on Google?
Conduct a search on Google for the name â€śRobert,â€? and Robert Scobleâ€™s blog Scobleizer will pop up in the number one spot. Robert Scoble has been working hard out there in the blogosphere. Every time he posts a comment his url appears on a bloggerâ€™s website with the keywords â€śRobert Scoble.â€?
If thatâ€™s not a demonstration of the power of blogs for links, I donâ€™t know what is.
Where do you come in the one name Google search game?

# 15. But I'm neither as pretty or as talented as Leslie Sansone. Maybe I should start walking more.

Mike tells me he searched on Sansone rather than Mike, and came up 15.
How about your first name?

#114! I suck! Or, actually, considering how many Jasons there are in the world, I guess that's not so bad after all. Note, by the way, that the most popular "Jason" blogger is Jason Kottke, who shows up as #3. Oh, and I did one just on my last name as well, and came up #1, so that was pretty cool.

Hmmm... I wonder if we can develop a ratio between the number of Jason's in the world and where you appear on Google? Might give us an influence ratio. Not sure what that means, but I do think that having the number one spot on your first name, especially if its a common name. Is a great sign that you are doing a great job of outreach to the blogosphere.
