Google “Watch Conan,” Check the First Result … Problem?

This is the first result you get when you Google “Watch Conan.” Huh?

From a search engine optimization perspective, this is probably because the URL in question is http://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show rather than, say, nbc.com/jay-leno-tonight-show, so it would presumably gotten a lot of Conan-centric backlinks when O’Brien was helming the show. Since Conan’s show just started on TBS, it probably won’t be long until teamcoco.com or the SEO’d up TBS page, http://www.tbs.com/video/conan/ (title tag: “Watch Conan O’Brien Full Episodes, Conan Videos, Conan Comedy Clips @ TeamCoco.com”) get the glory, but it’s still ironic and a little evil that Jay Leno presently snags the top spot.

Apparently, more than 40,000 people search “watch Conan” every month; sorry guys.
