Google likes Andrew C more than me

It is true that Google likes me. But Google likes Veteran Blogger Andrew Careaga (of the BloggedyBlog ) even better than me.
How do I know this?
Because if you type “Andrew” into your Google search engine, Bloggedyblog comes out on page 3. Yours truly falls way back on a miserable Page 4, a page behind Andrew Careaga.
Dang it! How will any “Andrew” seeker find me way back in the dark, dusty halls of Page 4? And as they scroll through those first few pages, no doubt they will stumble on the Great Andrew C, get sidetracked by his BloggedyBlog, and probably never even make it down to Andrew J.
Life sucks!
But at least I am beaten by a good man.
Andrew C has also written some really helpful books on e-ministry and I count him as a good friend, even though we have only seen each other once in person.

Happy birthday Andrew C for last Saturday. I dont care that you are more popular than me in the eyes of Google Almighty . . . because . . . you are OLDER than me, and have become just that little more older. But be encouraged that despite your age (or because of it) YOU TOTALLY GET IT and your blog site should be on everyone’s top five. Lodged in right below mine.

    you need to get a less common name like darren 🙂

  • jonny says:

    woooooo! darren we are not worthy – you are not only on page one but number one!!! i have joined the ranks of sad losers and typed jonny in – i was feeling pretty chuffed until i typed darren in 🙂

  • will says:

    Hey, it could be worse. You could have a name that Google has deemed too common to search by…
    alas, the woes of having a wildly common name…

  • I’m blushing here! Thanks for the kind words. Too bad we both have to share the same first name as Andrew Sullivan, eh?

  • Andrew Jones says:

    Hey guys. After posting that blog I read the Bible where God says not to think more highly of yourself than you ought to. I got a little convicted and kinda wished I hadnt blogged that.
    I wont delete it . . . but I am not sure this conversation is a good one – I would hate people to start checking on their own popularity as an addiction.
    I only found out because Neill Birchenall noticed it (came out on page 6 when he searched) and notified me)
    Anyway – congrats DArren!!!!

  • I’m on page 16, behind a bunch of AngelFire homepages. Ugh. But you’re right – it’s not about winning a popularity contest.
