Is Google going slap happy?

Ethann posted Google must really like me, in which he says:
The last time I checked, my name returned about 700 hits.  When I checked this morning, it returned 11,700 hits.  To be honest I can't see what the difference is between last week and this week, but I'll take it!
I went to check for "Ben Langhinrichs", and I must admit I was surprised:



I may be popular, and I may even answer too many blogs and discussion topics, but there is no way this number is right.  Interestingly, it was 90,800 last night and this morning it is 90,900.  I think Google may have a glitch.

Well, I got you beat a little there: 1,900,000 for me. And through the miracle of the blogosphere (that is, most likely the connections to folks like you, Ed, Rich, etc... ) my new blog is the first result displayed! Woohoo!! Instant fame and popularity! Surely the riches can't be far behind...

Sorry to burst your bubble, but before you get too slap happy yourself, put your name in quotes. Then you only get 670 hits. Still a lot, but not over a million

204,000 for me.... OK somebody burst my ego bubble please :-)

@Jerry - I hope that you are right because I've already started spending the riches... :-)

283,000 for me... but "Richard Schwartz" is a far more common name than "Ben Langhinrichs". I do come up as the first hit, but I share my name with a number writers, college professors. journalists, and even some other bloggers.

Gee, thanks for the reality check there Ben. Oh well, less hits, but I'm still #1!! :-)
