Dear Prudence, won’t you come out to play the SEO game?

It simultaneously irks and intrigues me that Margo comes up above Prudie in a Google search for “Dear Prudence.”  (Both beat out the Beatles, BTW).

Full disclosure: Margo once was Dear Prudence, before Emily Yoffe, who now holds the spot.  But she’s not now–and furthermore, it’s not even mentioned in her mini-bio.  And are are more people really linking to http://www.creators.com/ than to http://www.slate.com/?  Really?

So bewildering.

Then again, these Google’s results are, by default, personalized now.  Admittedly, I go to Margo’s column more often than I do to Prudie’s–she publishes more frequently.  But I never go there when I’m searching for Prudie.  So what gives?
