When Your Google Juice Haunts You


Go ahead and Google Tuukka Rask trade.  Do it... I'll wait.  One of the top results, if not the very top result, is Leafs Trade Tuukka Rask for Andrew Raycroft | Toronto Mike's Blog.

I bring this up for a couple of reasons.  Firstly, that entry was written exactly four years ago today.  Happy birthday, Rask for Raycroft trade entry!  Secondly, due to my Google ranking, that entry continues to haunt me.  Whenever Rask has a good game, I see visits to that page from Google spike.  I hate the fact that four years later my ridiculous thoughts on that absolutely brutal trade are read over and over and over again.

Bloggers, be very careful what you publish.  With a little Google juice, your words could come back to haunt you.
