I like statistics; they can prove every helpful finding bugs and errors, but also give some great information about general usage.So signed up to the Google Webmaster tools a few months back, to see how google views my site and to hopefully catch errors that I may have missed.
This proved very helpful on some items, plus it gives some decent information about searches that included your website and the related position of your site in the results.
I've never been the kind that attempts to gain Search engine positions nor do I care about Search Engine Optimisation when building my site or creating content.
So I was more than bewildered, for lack of a better word, when I accessed my websites search related information on Google for the last 7 days.
It appears that the post I made about a Phishing email I had received, was now appearing second on Google searches for the Halifax URL, the first of course being the official website.
Additional searches engine results have redirected visitors to my website for other items related to that same Phishing post.
I suppose that it's a good thing that people are searching information on suspected Phishing emails and I hope that their profile is raised among those people less knowledgeable about the attempts to gain information from internet users.
