When I tell people how to find SMUG, I usually tell them to search for Lee Aase in Google, or alternatively SMUG U. When you do that, SMUG shows up as the top search result.
Previously, when I just searched for SMUG, our beloved university seemed to show up on the third or fourth page of Google results which, as you all know, is pretty worthless. Between SmugMug and various Macintosh User Groups, we were far from the first page.
So last night I was surprised to see this when I entered the term smug in Google (click to enlarge):
So in my results (I wasn’t logged into Gmail, so hopefully it wasn’t just a case of Google relating the search to me), Social Media University, Global (SMUG) showed up in position #7.
I’d like your help with this. What position does this university have in your Google results for smug? First page? If so, what position?

Yup, first page, ranking in at the #2 slot.
Yes, first page, position 6.
SMUG came in on page 1 at position #5 this morning.
Yep, same as you for me, “SMUG” was 7th on the first page. Although oddly, it offered no description of the site.
When I searched for SMUG alone, it came up fifth. “SMUG University” came up first.
When signed in on Gmail, it’s 2
When signed off, it’s 5.
It’s on the first page, position #6.
