Microsoft 0wnz ‘http’

Web: Back in 2002, it occurred to someone to check the Google search results for ‘http’, to figure out what the most popular sites were.

Looks like it’s changed — here’s the top five results from a Google search for ‘http’ now:

  • 1: Microsoft
  • 2: AltaVista (!!)
  • 3: Yahoo!
  • 4: My Excite
  • 5: Google

My guess: older links are getting good PageRank, using whatever new tweaked algorithm they’re using. But AltaVista beating Google? ;)
