What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Doing a Google Search this evening I noticed the following interesting first result. alt text

It seems that even Google knows that SO always has the answer, except the link points to the question C# Automatic Property DeSerialization of JSON.

I am not sure if this is a bug, or if SO can even control what the Google crawler sees, but thought I would post it for interest sake anyway.

Fair enough. I suspected it is an edge case. But well worth the posting value. – BinaryMisfit Sep 7 '10 at 19:55
    
I also first thought of that, so I googled for such a link using link:, but I couldn't find any. – BalusC Sep 7 '10 at 20:23
