Another Google update

I haven’t recorded this since 2015, so it’s time for another update.

The top 10 for today when searching for “Phil Gluyas” (with the quotation marks)
1. The Autism Wikia article on me (up from 5 to 1)
2. This website’s entry page (up from 8 to 2)
3. The Lie Library’s open letter to me (new)
4. The ABC story on my court win over Canby (down from 1 to 4)
5. The Age story on my court case against Canby (up from 6 to 5)
6. The Age story on my court win over Canby (up from 7 to 6)
7. A search result for my name on Facebook (up from 12 to 7)
8. The Crazz Files’ entry on the AV Name Check (new)
9. My Autism Word Press blog (down from 2 to 9)
10. My LinkedIn profile (down from 9 to 10)

Over the page;
11. The NAW promo I did having a go at Iron Horse Morrison & Paul Vaughan (video) (new)
12. The list of images associated with my name (down from 4 to 12)
13. The NAW promo I did having a go at then NAW champion Jarek Craven (video) (up from 14 to 13)
14. My letter to the editor of the Bendigo Advertiser about Vaxxed in Castlemaine (new)
15. My closed petition on Change.org about the now ignored Limbo Club (new)
16. Lurker’s blog entry claiming I resent all Autistics (up from 20 to 16)
17. Mitchell’s entry about the ASD awards (down from 16 to 17)

18. The article on Best on Rational Wiki where my name is mentioned (no change)
19. The list of submissions to the Autism Enquiry including mine (new)
20. The page on Archive.org for Episode 20 of the Phil’s World Podcast (new)

There has been a bit of a deterioration over the last two years. In 2015 there were no hostile links on the first page and now there are two (the Lie Library and the Crazz Files). It’s also annoying that the Limbo Club is back although I can blame that on the anti vaxxers for finding that petition and spreading the nonsense in the comments that I can’t delete. I’ll have to deal with that at some point.

Seven new entries means seven disappearances – two of them were from Twitter which is quite right. There was an older episode of the Phil’s World podcast on the last update (Episode 4) which has now been replaced by episode 20. Over on the next page there is a curiosity – the Lurker/Cresp entry is duplicated. The Twitter account listed there is – or was as I had it deleted – an impersonation account. The Left Brain Right Brain article on my win over Best is at number 31 on the fourth page, but that’s it. The Best petition on Change.org is gone as has my profile at The Conversation and Mitchell’s 2010 entry about me running for State Parliament back then.

When I changed the search to my full name within the quotation marks this was the result;

1. The ABC story on my court win over Canby (number 4 on the other search and no change on this search)
2. The Crazz Files entry (number 8 on the other search and new on this one as well)
3. The Autism Wikia article on me (number 1 on the other search and new on this one)
4. The Age story on my court case against Canby (number 5 on the other search and down from 2 on this one)
5. The Age story on my court win over Canby (number 6 on the other search and down from 3 on this one)
6. The Lie Library entry (number 2 on the other search and new on this one)
7. The search for my name “Phil” on Facebook (number 7 on the other search and new on this one)
8. My political account on Facebook (not on the other search and new on this one)
9. The Autism Daily Newscast’s article on my win over Canby (not on the other search and new on this one)
10. An article on Ballarat trains back in 2014 with me in the comments (not on the other search and new on this one)

Over the page again;
11. A list of images of me (number 12 on the other search and down from 4 on this one)
12. Marsdens Law Group’s blog entry on my win over Canby (not in the other search and up from 20 on this one)
13. Defamation Watch’s Grapevine Effect tag, which includes the next entry (not in the other search and new on this one)
14. Defamation Watch’s article on my win over Best (not in the other search and down from 6 on this one)
15. The NAW promo I did having a go at then NAW champion Jarek Craven (video) (number 13 on the other search and new on this one)
16. A PinInterest link to an article about my win over Canby (not in the other search and new on this one)
17. News.com.au’s story about my loss to Google in VCAT (not in the other search and new on this one)
18. The mobile version of my political Twitter account (not in the other search and new on this one)
19. The Ararat Addy’s story on my meeting in Ararat during the 2014 campaign (not in the other search and down from 12 on this one)
20. Salvation Army Captain Philip Gluyas’ Google Plus account (not in the other search and new on this one)

There are a lot of differences on this one – 14 to be exact. Again though the hostile entries (which were totally absent in the top 20 in 2015) have increased. The two in the top ten. I’m not happy with the loss in VCAT showing up either. But my namesake in Sydney only has one entry compared to four last time including three in the top ten. Lurker is still there on the third page up to 31 from 33. I stopped looking at page five.

I still intend to work on these results and do my best to get rid of the hostile ones. But as it was two years ago it’s not a priority.
