At some point this year, I'll complete my sixth year of blogging. These past few years, as my SEO skills improved and my Google-fu strengthened, I've had a few kicks over how highly I'd rank for certain keywords. I still think it's pretty cool that I rank #2 behind Wikipedia when people Google Bill Barilko.
Earlier today, while browsing the referral log, I saw a visitor dropping by after Googling Tom Henke. Tom Henke, beloved Blue Jay and dominant closer for so many wonderful years. I wondered where I ranked when people Google Tom Henke.
I'm currently ranked #3, just behind Wikipedia and baseball-reference.com, a couple of major league heavyweights.
If you had told me twenty years ago I'd one day rank third when people search for Tom Henke... I'd wonder what the hell you were talking about.
