Remember the story on Read Write Web that was called "Facebook Wants to Be Your One True Login"? It causes some controversy back then because it made the popular web blog rank in front of Facebook in Google Search for the term Facebook Login. Many Facebook users left comments and messages on the Read Write Web website that were complaining about the design changes of Facebook, others wondered how they could access Facebook from that page.

Read Write Web had to add a bold paragraph to the article that explained to Facebook users that the site was not Facebook.

The recent ranking algorithm changes by Google, dubbed MayDay by webmasters throughout the world, has apparently repeated the ranking problems. The site in position one in the Google Search engine for Facebook Login is a very basic website with the domain name sahabatsejati.com that is currently displaying a 404 error message, most likely caused by the increase in traffic that this highly competitive search term is sending to the site that made it to the top of the Google search engine.

The Google cache is still showing the website which does not even contain a link to Facebook.

The Facebook website is listed in second position right after the dead website. This is a very prominent example of the ranking problems of Google Search. Maybe it is time to switch to another search engine, read Useful Tips To Get The Most Out Of Bing Search for a start.

MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY, Google we have a problem.

    wow Thanks for pointing that out. I was searching for a android blog or forum last night and thought there must be something better than what the top results showed.

    Why is this a problem? IMO the further down the page facebook is the better.
