Yesterday, I conducted a little test to see where I pop up in search engines. I did make use of the list of major search engines from Search EngineWeb and checked for “Tagore settings”, a page on music set to or inspired by words of Rabindranath Tagore, the Indian poet and 1913 Nobel laureate.
Why do I want a high ranking? Well, I need input from others. While doing this little survey, I came across still further useful info!
|Search Engine||Results for 6 August 2002|

|Lycos||no.14 (page 2) for Lindo’s blog|
Some conclusions: I need to get listed in the Open Directory, and figure out why AltaVista and Yahoo! miss me completely. Further, I need to get listed in the Google’s directory. Work ahead.
