I always knew that Google somehow favours blogs, because they represent current informaton, rather than aged and decayed information found on “static” sites.

But somehow I am blown away by the Google ranking a recent blog post on our corporate blog produced. I wrote about a possible addition to StringUtils. Not very elaborated, but a good base to start from.

Today I needed to search for a method in StringUtils at a colleagues desk. We went to google and searched for StringUtils.

I expected the API link on top, but never ever expected the second most relevant hit to be my blog posting. That is pretty cool :-)
