MemeStreams is a mini Google bomb for the people. Take your MemeStream title for instance.. Because if the way our pages interlink, if you are one of the people on this system who has used it actively for a long time and is highly recommended (yes, it matters, alot), you can pretty much pick your Google key words.. Just don't shoot for the moon. There is only so much one site can do, hence why the Bush "miserable failure" thing required a bunch of bloggers posting in concert to pull off.

Assume the stuff in ""'s is a Google Search.. And keep in mind, the results may have changed.. In general, everything I put in ""'s was a first result returned, or otherwise noted. Here we go:
Elonka has her "Subcultures R Us", lets hope the nation of 'R Us' dosen't mind.. :)
Google is so in tune with Jeremy I can ask it "What questions are you asking about Raymond?", and its going to pick up on the fact he has been preoccupied with some humorous who loves raymond meme.. Yes, I know in order for that to make sense it should be "What questions are they asking you about Raymond?".. But the first hit for that is ESR telling me the right way to ask a question. Ironic. All this confusion about questions being asked and who is asking them. It seems like such a small Internet sometimes.
flynn23 could ask Google some questions he already knows the answer to like "If I had a weblog, what would I call it?"
With the right set of words, you do not need to be around long to get some action out of Google. "Gremlin Garbage", "Leprechauns and Star Tattoos" can be found in Google land..
Jessica the "Paranoid Defense Worker" isn't showing up yet, because she just changed her MemeStream title. The reason why is ironically connected. The previous one was showing up for "General Dynamics web site access policy".
"Get back to work" is shooting for the moon in this economy.. Almost 100k results to rank. However if you use Laughing Boy's complete title and ask "get back to work slacker", it shoots to the top..
How is this for weird? crankymessiah was either "resurrected on the wrong side of the bed" or Google has a built in sense of humor, because for some reason that query is bringing up the RSS feed..
"Nanochick" dosen't need shit. She dosen't need a title. She is "Nanockick". Look at her, kicking that memestreams.net email address. Aww yea.
Who "Deletes spam"? Who "Sips the tea substitute" and "watches the grey light become more like day"?? Cayce the Coolhunter in William Gibson's novel Pattern Recognition? No! More irony. As far as Google is concerned.. Its Decius.
And me? I'm the one researching all this.. Whenever I'm at Google, and I want to search for something I know I've meme'd before, I don't use "site:...", I just go "sudo bash" and use MemeStreams. Heh.. Solaris/Linux people will find that amusing. OSX people will think I'm talking shit on Google. Everyone else can just know there is a joke they are not in on. :)
