EgoSurfing made easy

Yes, I do occasionally search for links to my blog and mentions of my name. You may call it ego surfing or Web narcissism, but I prefer to think of it as “listening to the conversation.” Yeah, right.

It was one of those searches that turned up, a free site that shows you where you rank in each of the major search sites. It also assigns “ego points” according to a formula that’s secret, thus vitiating the feature. You can have it search for your name, your site, or any string. You may also discover, as I did, that your domain is not indexed at all by Zero hits on “” at msn! (The EgoSurf faq is amusing.)

Fortunately, the site works slowly, so you won’t be tempted to check it 15 times a day, you narcissistconversation-lover, you! [Tags: ]
