    I know Google ranks you higher if you're on its directory listing, but this is absurd.

    heh, what am I missing here? What's absurd about the results?

    I think the "absurd" thing that he is reffering to is that Tekken Zaibatsu came up and it's the second one that listed. That might mean that there are strong ties between that site and VF. LoL

    Ah, yeah, I was wondering why that was there. At first I thought they had VFDC links on their main page, but nope, they don't. So then I checked their index source, and there's no mention of virtua fighter at all.

    So yeah, a sneaky submission to Google. Absurd as it is, we should be flattered /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    The TZ is surprising, yes, given it never mentions VF... what's even more surprising is that numbers 6-10 are basically links from my site and GamerPlanet, which mention VF and are on the directory, even if they're totally irrelevant links. Even the second page is better (it features GI and SRK, which probably link to VFDC).

    While the link itself was directly to the front page of TZ, the text that showed up on the google page looked like it came out of a post on the message board. The link to VFDC has been given out tons of times on various posts over there.
