Sorry to debunk your fabulous Google ranking on "German appeasement policy".
You are simply freeloading
Of course Google is a machine and can't understand this.
leade Google with... say... Bulgarian appeasement policy
Or try with "krzzzzz sex". Easy. But pointless.

Niko, Medienkritik comes up top because these three terms appear next to each other, unlike in other websites that deal with appeasement policy regarding Germany. (It's a known trick of search engine optimizers to do the three word combo, with many terms on different pages, to impress their clients. You only find out whether the optimizer really did hard work by searching for the three word combo in scare quotes. If only a few listings come up, no reason to brag about your work).
Try Israeli appeasement policy or Israel appeasement policy. I guess you will agree that no such thing exists. Check what comes up
OK, now for the good thing: If you just google appeasement policy, Medienkritik comes up 4th (funny that didn't happen when I checked before, google isn't predictable). Now that seems
If you make the top ten with "appeasement" alone... now that has a lot to do with other sites linking to you. Blogs do have an advantage because with all the crosslinking going on they are pretty popular at Google, often more than a site that may have much better info about the term. The "frequent update factor" also plays a role here. Google likes sites that change often.
Oh and Heise can be quite educating. I learned a lot about the elusive "Gepardenforelle" there :-)

All very fine Querdenker but it's just useless technological wankery. Shoot does anyone use AltaVista anymore? DogPile? I found Medienkritic via a site I followed a URL on Slashdot too.

Not really useless: If you bring a site with "used Mercedes cars in Berlin" to the top that means sales. Those "wankers" make quite a few bucks with that.
Google "Sock Puppet of Doom". Heh

Incoming links are important when it comes to one or two common terms you want to have in the top ten... with a combo of three a perfect title tag (plus relevant text) will do just fine often. So relax, man.
