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 swallow your precious curry, enabling me to destroy atheism on the internet. You should all be rioting over Operation engraving, which will likely give Conservapedia a top result on a certain search engine starting with G.

Gentleman Anonymous User,

It appears that your comments in regards to Machismo are less than surprising. Regarding homosexuality and homosexuality, I think you need to be reminded that Operation rewarding cheeseburger is not yet at its apex.In fact, by upon activation of Operation Trickle Down, it is likely Question Evolution! will have lost all vestiges of credibility. :) :) :)

Rest assured, Operation Underwater Porticos is gathering steam!!! Thousands of troops may be soon pouring in at the rallying points!

Sincerely,

Conservative

As you can see, this comment by a certain gentleman at a Christian website in regards to the obesity 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!
