I pinged pingomatic and voila. A short while later I appeared! Found I came up in the search, after 5 pages of poker sites (what is up with that?). but clicking on the story and the link to my blog, brings up php errors. check it out! http://reddomaha.com/2005/09/14/google-blog-search/ Strange, the blog search has every one of my WP pages indexed, but the main index only has about half. Google seems to have found me very well… Just for fun, I went to the new google blog search, and typed in the word “speedskating” as that is the (very small) sport that is the primary focus of my blog.. what a moment!!!, I discovered that an interview I did with an Olympic medalist (and friend) was #1 result, and also there were plenty of links on the first page pointed at me… sometimes it stinks to be in such a small sport, but at other times, like when the poker sites & other spammers don’t even THINK of you as a target worth keyword spamming.. its kinda nice… I’m pretty well indexed by GBS, but I’ve noticed that they are having a tough time getting their results to weight towards relevance. In a number of searches, GBS returns several pages of results that often don’t even match well to the term… In my estimation, Google still has a bit of work to do before their blog search is prime time. Thanks for the tip; this definitely helped with visibility of our blog! Rich N. Comments are closed.
