What's your vanity rank?

A vanity search is when you type your own name into a search engine.

Now, most of us vanity searchers have learned that we are not alone -- there are pretenders out there using our names! So I propose a new term: "Vanity rank". To determine your vanity rank, simply do a vanity search and find the first link that refers to you rather than some doppelganger.

What's my vanity rank? At time of writing -- using Google -- it is 2 as Daniel Prager, and 1 as Dan Prager.

Please look out for my coming book, "How to boost your vanity rank", Narcissus Press, a subsidiary of Mirror Corp.
