- It is not until the fourth result that a searcher finds the most plausible link to Armstrong. This contains his current job title at Honda, as well as a video interview. The webpage also provides an up-to-date biography with details of the societies to which he belongs.
- The final result is a link to a profile site for playwrights.
VERDICT: The irrelevancy of the top three results to Armstrong is shocking; not until the fourth hit does a proper link and profile outline appear.
ACTION: The name Ian Armstrong is quite common; it has more than 300 links to it, making it hard to contend with issues of relevance. However, he could work on raising his profile with press coverage to overtake old, non-relevant links.
