I'm writing some notes for a presentation about blogging at Warwick. One of the things I'm interested in is blog entries which become highly visible to search engines. Does anyone have any interesting examples of Google searches which return a Warwick Blogs entry somewhere in the first ten results?
I should clarify what I mean by "interesting", perhaps:-
- Results for something other than someone's name are interesting (so "crystalography" would be more interesting than "John Smith").
- Results about a subject other than someone's life are interesting (so "Plato" would be more interesting than "John Smith party fifteen pints").
- Results which are ranked number one are more interesting than results ranked number ten.
- Results which point to posts which are in some sense serious – they are reflective or critical or analytical – are more interesting than results which point to rants or rambles or funnys.
None of which is to say, of course, that there's anything wrong with blogging about your life, or ranting, or being funny. But if you know of any Google searches which meet one or more of the above criteria, it'd be very helpful if you could leave a comment. Thanks.
