Search Engine Savvy

Although my website is far from the center of the web. In fact it is way out in the long tail. None the less I get a few visitors and especially on my free-wheeling blog I get some odd referrals. I don’t help matters by excessively using phrases such as unreal calf muscles casually in passing.

Although I plan another article on search engine optimization tentatively to be written in early December I’ve recently noticed my blog postings are appearing in the main Google index with great rapidness. Jason Dowdell and I had previously estimated about a week for this to happen but now it is happening much faster, at least for Muskblog.

I had also proposed a way to easily test this. Simply set up a Google Alert for an obscure keyword phrase and then use that in your blog. The phrase I have chosen to use is quadrangle juniper. I don’t know if this is a googlewhack or not, but it doesn’t matter it seems highly unlikely a lot of other people will be blogging about it.


  • According to my Google Alert this posting is now in their index. It is the 24th here in China, so that is only three days. I’m sure a post can be indexed faster. If you are in their news source list they will index you right away I’m told.
