Why do it yourself, when a computer can do it for you?

After all, anything can be automated.

Even something as self-centred as egosurfing. Yes, you can now "Know Your Place", as's tagline so neatly puts it, at just the click of a button. No more typing your name into Google or Yahoo!, or even MSN, or Technorati.

Fill in your name, some appropriate URLs, and you can quickly see just what the web thinks (or doesn't think) of you.

Ever the happy guinea pig, I tried it out.

Apparently my egopoints (whatever meaningless number they are) are:

enginerankingego points
google.com1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th7899
yahoo.com1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 9th8298
msn.com1st, 2nd, and 3rd2692
del.icio.us2nd, 3rd, and 6th2362
technorati.com7th, 8th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th7599

A nifty tool, and quite fun watching it pop up the results - the whole thing is a fairly decent piece of AJAX code.
