SEO For Google's Bacon Number

Google Bacon NumberI spotted a thread at the Google Web Search Help forums, where one searcher was sad to notice that his name didn't come up in Google's Bacon Number results for being on the Price is Right with Drew Carey.

He said, he was a contestant on the Price is Right with Drew Carey and since there are 3 numbers away, i.e. Kevin Bacon -> Bobcat Goldthwait -> Drew Carey-> Ronald Burton Jr. - why doesn't he show up in the results.

Well, Ronald Burton Jr. simply can't SEO himself in there.

Google's Nealeigh explained:

The Bacon Number is sourced from info and signals off the web. So if there's very little mention of your appearance elsewhere, the degree will be difficult to influence. Google doesn't store the information anywhere and we can't manually adjust the number.

I wonder if any SEO can hack their way into the Bacon Number - go for it.
