Last Night on Maddow: Hecht and Savage!

Posted by on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 3:33 PM

I fell asleep in front of the television last night around 12:40 AM watching Rachel Maddow. Look what I missed by conking out right before the last segment:

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

A genius? Aw, thanks, Rachel! And to get a mention practically in the same breath with world famous Twitter user Anthony Hecht? That's an honor. And for the record: Spreading Santorum is now—at least when I Google it—the #3 return. We're creeping back up!

You know... You have a perfectly good domain name in, but you hardly ever mention it anymore. Why don't we push some links to it? You know, like Rick Santorum so richly deserves.

It's #2 on Bing now, I believe it was 4 or 5 not long ago?

Not "Dan Savage employee Anthony Hecht"?

OK. Sure.

SpreadingSantorum is back at the first and second results, Rick's Wiki page is 3rd, and Savage Love is 4th, the wikipedia article on the campaign for the neologism is 5th.

I like how she says my name in quotes.

still - and from the beginning of this google shuffle - searching 'www.santorum' results in spreading santorum at the top.

re: order in which search results are returned: see also:

Run your search through Tor using the Tor browser bundle (available for Linux, Mac OS, and Windows), and you will very likely see different results.

Thanks to Google's "helpful" algoribbons, everyone's personal browsing and searching history ahem taints their results.

I keep unnecessary cookies blocked, no search history or browsing history recorded, and not signed into Google or Chrome. As always, Spreading Santorum comes up 12th or 13th—on the second page.

Also tried it using the—the search engine that doesn't track you—with their !G syntax to simulate a Google search. Same thing. 12th and 13th on the second page.
