Top of the Heap

Wednesday, January 29th, 2003 · No Comments

Continuing with my self-indulgence for another moment, I have just discovered that a Google search for Gabe now puts my home page as the #1 result. This totally rocks. Back in December I wrote about Movin’ Up the Ranks when the same search put my Vassar Blogs page at result #3.

Of course, I was first inspired to achieve such a feat by fellow Vassar alum David Gallagher, who wrote about this very topic in Business 2.0. The one difference, though, is that I was less direct in how I went about achieving this goal: I strove for creating good content on my site (and still do) so that people would link to me without my prompting them to do so. Only in a handful of cases did I ask fellow Vassar alums to link to my Vassar Blogs page, but most who do have done so without my needing to ask.

Pretty exciting, I think. Now we’ll have to see how long I can stay at the top of the heap.

Here’s a screenshot to capture this proud moment.
