Search Engines and Je L'ai Dit :-)

I was recently wondering whether search engines would be able to pick my blog up and decided to perform an analysis by egosurfing. First of all, what is egosurfing? It is a term that i have picked up recently, it means browsing the internet about yourself to see how famous you are online :-)

Here are the results from google. (Read it as "query - result")

As my access logs say, yahoo and bing haven't picked up my blog at all yet. I strongly feel this is where google stands out. My blog doesn't get linked from anywhere apart from my facebook and twitter posts. Yet google somehow managed to locate and index it. For now, google is crawling my blog at a very low frequency rate. Hope it increases as i start posting regularly. :-)
