the Omniscience of Google?

A few days ago I wrote a little on googling for 'Adventures in the Romanian Underworld'. That was the title of a fictional piece of fiction on a television commercial that's been seen here-abouts. A couple of days later, I thought I would google Adventures Romanian Underworld once more to see if my blog entry had made it into the top 100. It hadn't. Then I tried the same thing with a blog search. Still no sign, even though everything that came up was less specific than what I asked for!
As a bit of a last resort I did a 'search MY Blog' action, and wouldn't you know it, our very good friends, the Heinzelmaennchen at Google STILL couldn't find it! They didn't need to look as far as the Romanian Underworld, they only needed to cast their eyes down about two entries! As a test, I tried a search for 'werewolves' and found some, and succesfully tried other topics too. But Adventures in the Romanian Underworld remains a mystery...

You can relax now. I typed "Adventures of teh Romanian Underworld" into google to see what the hell it was. The only entry was to your blog :)

Both me and my gf thought it might have been a porno due to the look the guy in the ad gave the prospective buyer - no such luck

Cheers Jon

I collude with the above. Your previous blog entry may not have called Google's attention, but thanks to this entry you are now the only result for people Googling that fictional title.
