#1 Technical Blog, revisited
A week ago, I said that my technical blog somehow comes up as
#1 technical blog on Google.
Several people pointed out that in my screenshot,
I was logged in to Google.
As you can see if you click on this screenshot,
I can reproduce this result even when I'm not signed in.
I'm still confounded by that ranking.
My content is good, but largely unremarkable—though
I'm unduly fond of A Use for Octal;
my style is understated;
my traffic is uncongested;
and my top billing is undeserved.
But none of the technical blogs listed on that first page
are of the first order, except Mark Russinovich's.
If I thought it made sense, I'd be flattered.
Alas, I cannot make it so.
