Hi all, first post here.
OK, this is a little disturbing... I was looking at my blog stats and saw that someone visited my blog by typing in my real name. This kinda freaked me out, because I'd like to keep my blog as anonymous as possible. (I'm not really interested in a discussions about the validity of that wish; that's another topic.)
So I went to Google, typed in my real name, and saw that my blog was the second hit on Google. How can this be? I've never used my real name in my blog, nor have any commenters. I confirmed this by searching on my site. The only thing I can imagine is that WordPress somehow funneled this information to Google. I typed my name into other search engines (yahoo, alta vista, and lycos) this didn't happen. Only Google shows my blog.
So two questions: 1. Can anyone offer insight as to how this can happen? 2. How can I sever the connection and make it so that my real name isn't connected to my blog?
