What’s My Google Rep?

Maybe sometimes it’s better you don’t know…

So, I run stats over my logs a couple of times a day (AWStats, if you’re interested). One of the things it tells me is what people have typed into search engines to find BeerRiot.

Last month, the search terms were pretty innocuous – mainly “beerriot” and the names of a few beers. This month, people have started searching for my name.

I don’t find this that strange, of course. I’ve Googled friends and new acquaintances more than once. What has me a little worried is that I am very few of the hits that either Google or Yahoo search returns.

I have to wonder who people think I am after clicking through a page or two of search results.

Just a few hints to get people closer to the right track:

  • I have no religious affiliations
  • I have never broken a Track & Field (or any other sport) record
  • As a general rule, I do not post pictures of my birthday parties on the web
  • I am not a country singer (or a music student)

Any other new webmasters dealing with similar paranoia?

…yeah, yeah, back to coding, I know…
