Interesting posting by Matthew Haughey (of Metafilter fame) about how blogs are starting to distort Google search results. Basically, blogs and bloggers tend to do most of what Google looks for in relevant pages as part of their standard practices. This is tending to make blogs about commercial (and other) topics (eg. a PVR blog by Haughey) appear higher in search results than any of the official company sites (eg. Tivo).
Haughey has designed lots of interesting sites and has some great work to show on his site.
