Ever wonder if your site made it in Google back when they first started?
Google just put up a nostalgia page featuring their oldest index. It’s a full featured search page, returning the crawled web pages in the year 2001. To my surprise, searching for my last name revealed my good old domain name as the #1 result! Back then, SEO techniques weren’t invented, so I didn’t even know how to be on top of their search result list. My site was just up and available. Apparently for Google, that was good enough.
