    Depends on PageRank, which depends on how many websites have links to your website and the PageRank of those websites. There are other factors too but I believe that is the primary one.

    As austinmetro said, check the Google website.

    It is an equation of over 500 variables, according to google, which include sites that are linked to you, the rank of that site, and how much that site's votes count for.

    From what i've discovered the most important thing for listing high on a certain word or phrase are to have in in your page title and headings and have other sites with high PR link to you with your keyword in the link text. For a goodiste on this visit www.webmasterworld.com

    hmmm... I'm third, searching for my name, but there's another guy with the same name (an "anarchist and free thinker" who has lots of stuff too. And an archived usenet post, for some reason.

    Oooh, if I don't shorten my name, I'm top

    My other site's top for better searches:
    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=knoppix+recovery
    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=kno...dows+hard+disc
    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=knoppix+pc+broken

    Though, I'm not sure _why_. Possibly the excellent HTML, and hence good content:markup ratio. I challenge you to find 5 or more links to that page (I'm not complaining though! I like it there!)
