this is wierd. On tripod, its only suppose to go into search engine's if you pay for it, and yet, when i type iluvatar10, my url comes up!
Well... that and four random posts from uk-learning. Any idea why only a few posts come up, rather than all of them or something?

The same with me. I get one or 2 of my posts coming up (I think from the HP thread), and a post on this other website from ages ago about the environment.

Hmm. Perhaps there is a limit of some kind, or perhaps the post has to specifically mention your name. Though I've seen your name in posts more than 4 times. Interesting, anyone got a better idea than I do? elpaw?

Typing 'Mr White' into Google finds a link to one of my old posts (on page 3 or so) - I feel like a celebrity.

No, google doesn't cache/display every single match up because they are similar, as in if search for a web site name, it doesn't display all its images.

When searching specifically on uk-learning, on google for my name, it can only find 551 with ommited posts included (out of approximately 1300!!!)
