Have you ever wondered what would happen if the blog world completely ignored Google for a few days?

I have.

I came over here from my RSS reader to comment (along the lines of "not much either way, really"), but then I got distracted by your "Related links from Google" feature.

You just *know* this is going to create an weblog discussion network about ignoring google.

Blogging about blogs ignoring Google... the irony.

Probably nothing. Blogs drive little traffic in the scheme of things. Out of 200+ million searches, what's a few thousand blogs? (I know there are more than a few thousand, but I'm speaking just tech blogs that would link/talk about google. Also there are only a handful < 200 blogs that would drive any sort of traffic...)

Ironically, your blog already comes up if someone "Googles" for "ignoring Google":


After this post gets indexed, you'll probably be #1.
