Nice!

How accurate is this? I find 8 entries when I Google for ["thanks tony ruscoe" | "thanks to tony ruscoe"] on your website yet only see 3 on that page you've created:

google.com/search?q=%22thanks+ ...

Also, sometimes I've been credited as just "Tony" instead of "Tony Ruscoe" – e.g.: blogoscoped.com/archive/2006-0 ... – but I can live with that! ;-)

(BTW, it doesn't matter too much for me, but it might be better to link to the Google search with the name in double quotes – e.g. ["Tony Ruscoe"] – so that it's got a better chance of finding the right person's website.)

Yeah, I found these ones that thank me :

blogoscoped.com/archive/2006-0 ...
blogoscoped.com/archive/2006-0 ...
blogoscoped.com/archive/2006-0 ...
blogoscoped.com/archive/2006-0 ...
blogoscoped.com/archive/2005-1 ...
blogoscoped.com/archive/2006-0 ...

But I'm not even in the list :o)

But that's only an ego issue.... so I guess it's okay ;o)

Tony, if you really want to be complete:

google.com/search?hl=en&lr ...

It caught one more :)

The counter starts only from early 2005. Around that time I moved from Blogger to my own database, and this current script only runs over the database. So that means Tony anything before 2005 is ignored, but will be found with a Google search. One of these days I might import all the old data into the database, right now it's more or less just lying around on static HTML files :)
But yeah, even for 2005+ some inaccuracies will stay... e.g. "Tony" vs "Tony Ruscoe". When possible I merge names (e.g. "SEW" + "Danny Sullivan" + "Barry Schwartz" all add to "Search Engine Watch").
