Mark Liberman commented yesterday on a Wired article about blogs getting in the way of "good" search results. This prompted SC to check on the Google searches leading people to this site.
Right now, we're #6 for "derivational morphology". Considering that the phrase is never actually even defined in the original post, this is not deserved. Blognoise 1, Useful Commentary 0.
Someone from Poland (or at least who prefers to use Google in Polish) checked SC out with morphology english cranberry words morphemes, where it ranks #7. That seems a bit more fair, since SC had an actual discussion of cranberry morphemes. But SC also has come up #10 in this search for morphemes from an Arabic-speaker (never mind that the results are all in English, seeing the page layout is a blast). We're #1 from this search for the 70s and linguistics, a category SC wants to own.
But best of all, based on our own research, we're #1 in "cracker barrel philosophy of science" -- out of 21 hits, SC is 19 of them (admittedly, there are only 4 unique ones). Considering that: 1) only one other person has ever written about that, and 2) it's a personal mission of this blog to popularize the phrase, this is one case where if a blog has cornered the market on a phrase, it's probably just fine.
