Untying the Gordian Knot

Or "How I stopped caring about codechef and learned to love google".

At the moment, they all seem to find their way here, in a way which is all but unknown on any other programming forum I frequent.

It must be a google thing. The more posts mention 'CC', the more google thinks this is relevant, and the more people it attracts.

It's a positive feedback loop.

CGI hack time :)

If it's on the list, feed them a different word to 'CC'.
Eventually, search engines will disassociate the two sites.

Or is there some other route by which a lot of them end up here?
