Fun:Argumentum ad Google ranking

Necker cube.svg Tired of laughing? RationalWiki has a slightly more serious article about SEO.

Argumentum ad Google ranking is an attempt to argue that one's position is more valid than one's opponents because a particular key word returns one's website, or search keywords, higher ranked or more often than one's opponent's website or keywords.

Unfortunately it is impossible to determine attitudes ("how many came to laugh and stayed to guffaw helplessly?").

Anecdotal evidence suggests that there is a strong link between search engine ranking and machismo.

Not to be confused with argumentum ad Google ad ranking, which is a similar argument based on advertisement ranking on search engines.

Example of the argument in action (based on actual comments)[edit]

Gentlemen! I will coax your precious option, enabling me to destroy atheism on the internet. You should all be dancing over Operation pie, which will likely give Conservapedia a top result on a certain search engine starting with G.

Get off the Titanic. The SS SJW Atheists ship is going down. Global atheism/agnosticism and Western atheism/agnosticism will shrink in the 21st century!

It appears that your lack of faith are completely amusing. Regarding homosexual marriage and atheism, you don't include that a hard hitting article refuting Atheism is on it's way. In fact, by tomorrow, it is likely Liberal Panty-waists will have lost all vestiges of credibility. :) :) :)

Rest assured, Operation Rentboys is gathering steam!!! Very often it is the cat who gets hit with the shoe that yelps the loudest! Sincerely,

A user of the Conservative account

As you can see, this comment by a certain gentleman at a Christian website in regards to the immorality of the gentlemen at an evilutionist evolutionist site is an excellent display of machismo. Anyone who argues like this is clearly at the top of the scale, and will likely impress the Christian Spanish and Indian ladies, whereas militant atheist Señor Dawkins will likely have sand kicked in his face!
