A lot of premier discussions at UD recently do not bring up google hits, but other sites which reference discussions at UD come up on google. This seems odd and deliberate. I cannot say for sure but this seems suspicious.

As an IT Professional, I am shocked that if you look up “uncommon descent” on google the only reference to the actual site is behe.uncommondescent.com along with a plethora of anti-ID sites. Compare the results to the BING and you see a huge difference. No I make no money off of bing. I don’t even use it myself. Although I might start if google keeps this up.
I used to be able to use google to search the UD archives (the internal search tool a UD isn’t as good). Then the google hits slowly died. If google makes revenue through UD, this also hurts them. If any of you know how to fix this problem, feel free to comment.
