The SEO side of me has been following the indexing habits of Google as they pertain to blog posts for time now. Google owns Blogger/Blogspot, so it is understandable that they would view “their” bloggers in a favorable light, but Google is truly nice to us these days. I posted in regards to an OfficeSnapshots.com listing earlier today and in under 4 hours, the post was indexed.
It is feasible that a well-timed blog post on a news item could get indexed before an online article from the New Work Times. That gives a bit of power to the blogger, don’t you think? It is interesting to think about this in the context of Google wanting to give the most relevant results. What I mean by this is that some blogger’s post about a news item may be a bit fictional in nature while the New York TImes’ piece could have real info and legitimate sources etc.
Ok, enough of my ranting, don’t get me wrong, I love that I can get something up on Google within hours.
