Gotta Love Those Google Rankings

I look forward to the day when a search for information on so-called black Confederates/Confederate slaves leads people to my site first.  A search for "Black Confederate" brings up the first of a nine-part series on Weary Clyburn in the number 3 slot, while a search for "Black Confederates" brings up the blog category, "The Myth of Black Confederates" again in the number 3 slot.  In both cases the top two sites are the same.  One is the book site for one of the more popular non-scholarly titles and the other site is run by the 37th Texas Cavalry.  Both have been around for some time, which means they will be tough nuts to crack. 

Update: No so fast.  It looks like these rankings are much more volatile that I first thought.

Thanks Robert. I came across the article this morning and plan to comment on it later today if I have the time.
