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.

    Impressive. I tried some other keywords, but no. Why is it the one? – BalusC Sep 7 '10 at 19:47

I suspect only Google can answer this, but probably a situation where the incoming high value link is in the form of

<a http="http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12345">this one</a>

  • 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

    @BalusC: What site do we know of that has lots of high value links to SO? This one. – Bill the Lizard Sep 7 '10 at 20:58
