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 EgoSurf.org, 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 MSN.com. Zero hits on “www.hyperorg.com” at msn! (The EgoSurf faq is amusing.)
