Danny SullivanDanny Sullivan (racing driver) – I think the SEO journalist has an equal claim to fame as the racing driver. This guy founded the two most-used resources in SEO. In addition, there are at least four other notable Danny Sullivans. Since this person is not "more likely than all the other topics combined" to be sought, we can say this is not the primary topic.

  • Oppose - Creating SEOs, even multiple resources, does not reach the level of notability of an Indianapolis 500 victory, especially when this Sullivan is also very well known for announcing work, Formula One and NASCAR careers, including a win in the 24 Hours of Daytona, the most prestigious endurance event in the Western Hemisphere and the second most prestigious in the world. The other Danny Sullivans are a 6-game rugby player, a 2-game hockey player, a fictional character who really is not notable enough to have an article, and a footballer who made his professional debut two days ago. The other four Danny Sullivans are, with no disrespect to them, utterly irrelevant when it comes to "all the other topics combined", and the SEO fellow, quite frankly, doesn't reach the level of notability needed to bump the driver away from the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. - The Bushranger One ping only 09:22, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose – I have to agree with The Bushranger. Sullivan the racing driver isn't just any old racing driver, he's a winner of the Indy 500, one of the world's most celebrated sports events. This is apart from his top-level participation in F1 and NASCAR. If he had been an also-ran I might support this move (and I rarely oppose racing driver article moves), but an SEO journalist isn't going to come anywhere near this level of notability. Moreover, I'd say outside the world of search engines and the machinations of the internet, the journalist is not well known at all, and I'd be willing to bet that his resources are not exactly household names, unlike the Indy 500. Without wishing to be flippant, I'd never heard of any of the entities in the journalist's article. The other Danny Sullivans are barely notable within their own fields, let alone more widely.

  • Oppose per the Bushranger and Bretonbanquet -Drdisque (talk) 04:03, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose seems pointless to ask whether more books are printed about racing or search engines, but what links here shows a big housekeeping job for anyone tidying up after the proposed move if Danny Sullivan becomes a dab. In ictu oculi (talk) 03:57, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose per Bretonbanquet , though the suggested title of the nominator should be created as a redirect. Perhaps the disambiguation page "Danny Sullivan (disambiguation)" should be split off to address the concerns of prominence of "Danny" -- 70.24.244.158 (talk) 04:23, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
