We're Number One on Google! Whoops. What a Minute....

Dave Aiello wrote, "I noticed that Dave Winer has been speculating that Google has tweaked their PageRank algorithm because his site isn't number one when you search for Dave anymore. He then went on to point out a whole discussion thread where people who refer to themselves as search engine optimizers are complaining that Google is monkeying with their livelyhoods. I agree with Dave Winer when he says:"

When people {who do search engine optimization for a living} say they're taking food out of their family's mouth, I think they should get a real job. Depending on the vagaries of an algorithm programmed by engineers at a VC-backed Silicon Valley dotcom-vestigial company is not a good idea. A bit of friendly advice.. Don't tell the loan officer at the bank that's how you're making your mortgage payments.

Dave Aiello continued, "Search engine optimization makes selling used books on Amazon.com look like a straight-forward way to make money."
