"I would link to the web page, but it's not on Google's top 50, so I can't be bothered - those guys need to talk to some SEO company..."

Hello? By putting just the search word "Idols" into Google's search field, the first two results are links to the Finnish version of the show.

I get Idols South Africa and a teen idols picture gallery. American Idol is sixth, and Finnish are nowhere to be seen. I tried even "Idols Suomi" and I got nada, zip, nothing.

YMMV. Google hiccup?

This comment thingie is horrible. I came to see comments not to click on tabs, thanks. FWIW, preview showed this comment two times (Opera 9.0tp1). Comment form also forgot my name and homepage.

"YMMV. Google hiccup?"

Yeah, funny; with the search word "Idols" the first hit is www.mtv3.fi/idols/ and the second one is www.mtv3.fi/idols/etusivu.shtml

Not terribly interesting, but mildly funny. ;P

Pasi: yeah, we're working on it. Sorry. It's an artifact of the new 2.3 series, and I haven't updated this template yet.

YM Will V with Google

Google.com is probably what Janne uses (as do I). Google.fi gives the Finnish Idols as the first result. I've noticed it many times already, different Googles return slightly different results based on some sort of localization logic.

Ahhh... Yeah, that might be it. Yes, I use google.com only.

--JanneJalkanen, 14-Dec-2005

I just added a quick fix to the "comment thingie". Hope it's clearer now :).

It's still buggy, though :(

Asiaa sivuten, onko suomalaisia flashmob sivustoja?

--Burana, 14-Dec-2005

Enpä voi väittää tietäväni. Suomessa on kyllä jokunen Flashmob ollut, mutta en tiedä mistä ne ovat lähteneet liikkeelle.

Haku "idols mtv3" (ilman lainausmerkkejä) tuottaa myös Google.comissa ekaksi linkiksi http://www.mtv3.fi/idols/

--amppeli, 20-Dec-2005

Miksi minun pitäisi tietää, että se on MTV3:n ohjelma? Enhän muuten googlaisi, jos tietäisin, kenen ohjelma se on... ;)
