11 years, hopefully it won't take Google that long to add my pages to the index.

Seriously, what a detective. Don't think Google deserve the praise though except for maybe having such Old Data.

Where government-issue tools and databases failed, a detective used the best search tool known to man to solve a cold case and bring closure to a grieving family after 11 years of agony; that is indeed praiseworthy.

It's a good thing that page wasn't sandboxed.

Good PR for Google after a long time! .


I think ebay is the best PR savvy internet company that knows how to use publicity - they let all controversial newsworthy auctions to run until it hits the media outlets and ban it afterwards!
