A few years ago, I was surprised when I googled my name, out of curiosity, only to find along with expected results, an entry I'd made in someone's GUESTBOOK a year earlier. I knew the search engines crawled sites, journals, etc, but guestbooks?? Good thing I said something nice, eh?:-)
At any rate, I checked the webtracker for my website today for the first time in about a month. My visitors come from almost anywhere imaginable, but google is the main search engine that finds me and usually with the key word 'inspirations'. (My site name is Poetic Inspirations). Today, I found some search results from dogpile and while, of course, this blog has also been showing for some time, I was surprised to find that one search had led to a COMMENT someone had made on this blog last year after Katrina hit.
Amazing, and it also tells you to be very wary what you say anywhere on a public forum. Who knows? I may find these words in a search engine one day.
