Not bug. Feature? :-)

1) Google has a very strong preference for fresh, recently added content. Don't be surprised if your page drops from the top spot in a few days/weeks.

2) It also seems that not too many people are writing anything interesting about "Necromantics", which, according to Merriam Webster Online, is not even a real word. (See: http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?necromantics ) I would have thought that "Necromancy" was more commonly used.

3) You can use your new-found Google Authority on "Necromantics" to fix google's results: Simply edit your old weblog entry so that the word "Necromantics" links to a page that you think should appear at the top of Google's search results. (BTW, you should probably to the same for this page, since it will probably also appear in Google soon.) Searching Don Park's weblog (http://www.docuverse.com/blog/donpark/) for the words "WebCore" will give more background information on that trick. (See: http://www.docuverse.com/blog/donpark/SearchView.aspx?q=webcore)

Ack! Crap! I should have placed a whitespace between the URLs and the closing brackets. Sorry 'bout that.

Alternatively, try to get people to pay you for media interviews as a guest expert on Necromantics.
Write a book on "Necromantics for managers" and then charge people 500-a-head to hear you speak on how necromantics can help them develop leadership skills that will bring their company forward.
