Google watch

29 Oct

This site has been running for almost three months. It’s now being indexed by Google, but still does not yet merit a Google PageRank. Google does identify some inbound links, but they are from only a few of the sites linking to this one (notably from PR Opinions).

What’s going on? Is Google, the owner of Blogger, becoming more selective about the sites it ranks? Are rival blogging systems (this one runs on Typepad) being given less favourable treatment?

    I have a typepad blog that’s been going a couple of months now (in my personal hobbyist field) and it hasn’t got a lot of links in to it. It does have a measurable page rank though. I personal put this down to a very unusual domain and to it being just about the only blog in its area of interest.
    If you rely on a rather generic name (e.g. ‘PR Studies’) you risk being one of many. For instance in your blogroll is ‘PR Opinion’, Online PR Thoughts’, ‘PR Machine’, ‘Corporate PR’, etc. It would be interesting to know if there’s any pattern to the pageranking of those sites to our right – i.e. if ‘Write Effect’ or ‘Phil’s Place’ come out higher for ‘PR’ than blogs with ‘PR’ in the title. Just a thought.

    Geez. I found this when searching for “Google Watch” to see what popped up. Your site was the fifth among the search results.
    Paranoid? 😉
