Type "God" into the Google search engine and 60 million results come up. The first is a link page for a music-downloading website that has been blocked. Not only is the site illegal but it has nothing to do with the search enquiry. This isn't much use for internet users looking for God - one of the most popular searches on the web

as always, very interesting, even if slightly incorrect in places...

Didn't this search use to lead to Phpbb or Postnuke as the #1 site a while back?

The real question is:

Will God sue Google because his name points to a "...Not only is the site illegal but it has nothing to do with the search enquiry...."?

I don't think God has his own web page. That's probably why you can't find him in Google.

Or maybe he was doing too many vanity search and Google kicked him out. In the old testament, God was pretty vain. :P

If all else fails, God could always try Adwords.

It's a catch-22, God needs professional SEO help, but those guys are all tools of Satan.

    How about "Thou shalt not put any other search engines before me"

    I don't think God needs to worry too much about search engines. He has a smite engine, and that is all that matters. I would put one well placed lightening bolt against 100,000 targetted search results any day.

    As for "bible=public domain" bit...translations of the bible might be copyrighted. I suggest you go with the King James translation.

    The devil logged on to the internet,
    looking for a soul to steal,
    he was in a bind because he was way behind
    and was willing to make a deal.

    He typed in some popular key phrases,
    then checked who had the number one spot,
    but every search he executed,
    was from a soul he had already bought.

    So, you have to sell your soul to get a high ranking these days?

    Hmmm. Looking at the spam crowding in and often beating many honest, hardworking web publishers, you just might have a point.

    Speaking of God, today's New York Times is saying the same for Jew [nytimes.com].
