Yesterday Google gave us all a serious gift with the new Bacon Number  search functionality. The popular game, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon , is now a fun way to waste even more time on the Internet. At least Google was smart enough to keep people on the SERP pages. More eyeballs for advertisements people!Although in the short amount of time since its debut, it's already receiving criticisms . Apparently this Bacon Number isn't as accurate as the previously used site The Oracle of Bacon  because Google's search uses the Knowledge Graph instead of The Oracle's IMDB  source. Looks as though the Knowledge Graph has some pop culture kinks to work out before this Bacon Number can really be looked at with any KLOUT . However, the employees at The Search Agency  agree that this still made out week, despite the kinks. Check out the list of our favorite celebrities' Bacon Number. David Waterman, Director of SEO and Content Tom Green's Bacon number is 2 Grant Simmons, Director of SEO and Social Product Michael Caine's Bacon number is 2 Barbara Palmer, President Kevin Bacon's Bacon number is 0 [WHAT?? Get it together Knowledge Graph! He should score the highest!--editor's note] "I know him. Does that count? :)" Joe Reynolds, Associate Creative Editor, Paid Search
Jared Leto's Bacon number is 2
Hugh Grant's Bacon number is 2
"Um...because who doesn't love a poufy men's blouse, floppy parted hair, big round glasses, and stumbling British accent??"Gabriel Law, Business Intelligence Manager Larry Page has no results!! "Well, LP founded Google and developed PageRank, practically providing a livelihood to all employees at The Search Agency." Something seems fishy here...why is everyone ranked with a Bacon Number 2?? Ok after several Google Searches later...I have discovered someone with a higher number. The one and only:
Justin Bieber's Bacon number is 4
Gwyneth Paltrow  and John Lithgow  appeared in Classical Baby: I'm Grown Up Now: The Poetry Show .
We will be very interested to see the progress of Knowledge Graph, and how it will better serve the Bacon Number community.
