Google Ranking Problems - What Ever Happened to Avril Lavigne?

Jun 28th

So Avril Lavigne is getting married. Why should I care? hehehe

While it is sad that I search for said information, it is interesting to note that Garbage.com is the top ranked site for both Avril and Avril Lavigne. Where is the relevancy on that one Google? Is Google trying to say she is a Stupid Girl?

Steve Balmer says they will catch Google on relevancy in 6 months, although Google continues to increase their marketshare, and today launched Google Earth and a truely personalized search service.

AVRIL LAVIGNE NOW HAS THE MOST NO. 1 TOP 40 HITS THIS DECADE, Source: BILLBOARD.COM

Avril Lavigne has ascended to a lofty pedestal: The 22-year-old now has the most No. 1 top 40 hits this decade at five and is the No. 2 artist in the 14-year history of Nielsen BDS, behind Mariah Carey's six chart-toppers. —Chuck Taylor (Billboard.com)

It's official - see weblink:

Aaron,

I fail to see one out of line result as being symptomatic of a relevancy problem. I mean if the Avril Lavigne official and fan sites were not to be found for her name and we had a list of poster shops/music price shopping site instead, I'd see a problem.

Could you expand your thoughts?

BTW, thanks for all the recent tool info and for the frequent updates to the book.

When the top result is another band that has nothing to do with the artist that is a problem.

Also the official site was not scoring too highly either, but the whole key is why are they ranking some other unrelated document as the most relevant resource?

Maybe it's because Avril sucks and rips off Garbage's ogi-san oba-chan image. Pretty nice ranking for Garbage, especially since title is coming up incorrectly. Garbage was a pretty good band for a hobby project for a bunch of producers.

avril official
avril official website
Avril Lavigne online
Avril Lavigne site
Avril Lavigne official web site

All those search terms will also yield garbage.com before Avril's official site. Which also I noted because I'm a web designer, but both sites have been created by the same web designer. Look at the style looks very similar. So then I pinged up both domains...

Pinging www.avrillavigne.com
[128.241.246.110]
Pinging garbage.com
[128.241.246.110]

Same server. Is it possible it ain't google's fault but some sort of dns mix up?
