Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" Button To Be Renamed "Wikipeda Result" Button - Joke

I found a thread at DigitalPoint Forums that made me smile.

Remember all out coverage over the past years on how well Google treats the Wikipedia in the search results? If not, here is a quick summary:

Well, check out this guy's funny mock up.

Google Mock with Wikipeda - Joke

He replaced the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button, with "Take Me to Wikipedia" because the I am feeling lucky button takes you directly to the first Google result. Enough said.

This is basically the same google fortune that AMAZON had been enjoying for several years - until recently. From the very day they began using SE friendly URLs and Titles, their SERPs dominated Google for three years.

Hi Barry, glad you liked my joke... Dave E at DP pointed out that you used it. You know, I'd really appreciate a link to my site above (using the anchor text "Buenos Aires") in return :) Pleeeeeaaaaassseeee... I know it is not a relevant link, but it would help me out a little all the same! You can PM me (BuenosAires) at DP if you want to confirm that this is me that posted the DP thread, and not just an imposter looking for a link.... I am just a chancer looking for a link instead!

I can't do that. I can link to a blog post you have on it? Do you have one? Sorry Alan, but as you said, "not a relevant link."

No worries Barry... you are right, it's not relevant... and I wouldn't write a post about it on any of my blogs because it wouldn't fit with their niches. Thanks all the same for appreciating a good joke :)
