What was your exact query (I guess you omitted the quotes)? If I query
for "michael hudson" (including the quotes!) your CV is the first entry
in the result list.

Google also looks at text of the links pointing to a website. E.g. if
there's a link <a href="http://starship.python.net/crew/mwh/">Michael
Hudson</a> on a website, google takes that as a hint that the page
pointed to is about "Michael Hudson".
