I noticed the weirdest thing today. One of my regular YouTube viewers mentioned he couldn’t find my blog on Google. When I check some of my old standby search terms (“Mr Angry”, “Angry Blog”, “foreskin blog”) I wasn’t showing up. At first I thought they might have recalibrated their algorithm which resulted in me being moved further down the list.
Then I actually put in “angryaussie” and got back a whole bunch of stuff from YouTube and some other sites but nothing from my blog. It’s always possible that this is not about me specifically – maybe they’ve just demoted hosted blogs generally. But I have no idea how to find out what’s happening.
If anyone has any expertise in this area (that includes working out what the hell happened and what the hell I can do about it) I’d appreciate some advice.
