Yeah call me a lazy bastard but Wikipedia's index page is not in Google.

MSN sees it ok. Why is Google a bastard ? This may shed some light into that LinkVault thing too.

I see you are confused. SO am I. Read my and Bill's comments here. You'll understand my point.

LOL

Oops!

Someone looks a bit too eager in proving the Google is bad.

Wiki

The wiki is in the top 100 on almost any generic topic, many top 10, they don't need any more stinking love.

If they had any more love, people would just start with the wiki and skip Google.
