I agree that, ideally, the first few 'google hits' would be relevant, well-written, up-to-date and attractive (something that RISC OS pages generally are not, IMO). Since we have no direct control over google, site maintainers should all be striving for this (as highlighted in this drobe article: [link])

The abscence of drobe in the first page of google results surprises me greatly (this couldn't be a robots.txt issue, could it?) Unfortunately, the domain name riscos.co.uk /is/ returned, which has no useful content in google's site excerpt -- I certainly wouldn't click through that google hit.

Google must work in mysterious ways ;)
