A friend of mine found this blog while digging for information about the WoW expansion. What interests me is the way that search tools will index and rank pages. I know Google has a very serious algorithm for ranking page results, and I’m always impressed with how effective the indexing is.
The results are skewed in because:
– The expansion name is the same as my website, which I think helps a lot.
– I used Warcraft in the site meta-tags, and also have a category called Warcraft.
– its been updated recently and it existed before the expansion was announced.
– my nickname is elsewhere in Warcraft forums and blogs as I try to use the same name in most places.
I doubt that anyone has linked to this page directly, and I know that only a few index sites have found this site due to the small number of hits. It has been submitted to a few sites for Blog ranking, but more for my learning on index and submission rather than looking for traffic.
