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

Gentlemen at an atheist website,

It is time for you to realize that your responses are utterly lackluster. As pointed out by Popular Christian YouTuber Shockofgod, atheism's lacking of appealing to women and racism, you fail to realize that that many at the so called "Rational"wiki are not exactly fond of me. In fact, by the latter part of next week, it is likely the Mainstream Media will have lost all vestiges of credibility. :) :) :)

Rest assured, Operation Galvanized Standpipes is gathering steam!!! It's clear that evolutionists will be running for the hills in regards to their Google rankings, which will likely be going rapidly downhill in the not too distant future.

Sincerely,

Conservative

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