It’s cool to show up on Google, but…

It's deflating to google for help or more information on a subject and see one of your own blog posts in the first page of the results.  Google, if I did know the answers I wouldn't be looking, now would I?

    Jeremy, I can’t tell you how many times that happened to me – except it was usually me looking for more information on some subject and it was your blog (definitely not mine) that came up in the results!

    Yeah, I do that too. I did that tonight to find one of my posts that had a link to a page on the C2 Wiki that I couldn’t find anymore.

    I don’t know about you, but I frequently search google for stuff that is on my blog.
    I literally can’t remember all the stuff that I do, and even if I could recall, it is easier to search and find how I did it previously.

    Take for instance configuring NHibernate to log perf data to database, that is not hard to figure out again, but it is much easier to just cut/paste the stuff from my post in the matter.
