Right now, we come up 4/5th on just a search for "racket", which is
pretty good at this point.  We're result 31 on Bing, and the Guide
(not the homepage) is result 27 on Yahoo.

More unfortunate is that the blurb that Google uses to describe Racket
is (Bing does a little better):

"Racket makes it easy to use TCP sockets and spawn threads to handle
them. This program starts a server at TCP port 12345 that echos
anything a client sends"

Is there some way to put more descriptive text somewhere Google will find it?
