Interesting page rank

Filed under: — stan @ 12:03 pm

For a long time, my “I hate Texas” page has been either #1 or near it in Google. I recently moved our whole site from its old domain to a new one, and Google has finally crawled the new site and gotten the current URL for the page. But now I see it’s fallen all the way to page seven in the search results. I suspect that this has something to do with how Google calculates page rank, and the fact that the ‘’ domain site is relatively new. It will be interesting to watch and see if the rank of that page climbs over the next few months.

    Heh. Well, I can’t help it. I’m just a nerd at heart. There’s really no reason why my old at-home-on-a-DSL-connection URL should have been ranked very highly. But it was. I think that’s because I am the maintainer for the rec.arts.bodyart Tattoo FAQ, and I post the FAQ to Usenet every month. Every copy of the FAQ has a link back to my home site. And the FAQ is archived at lots of places around the world. I think what happened is that lots of people link to the FAQ archive sites, and so they have a high page rank. And every site that has my FAQ on it has at least nine links back to my home site, that makes my home site rank high. So I expect that my current new URL will grow in page rank over the next few months, as my latest postings of the Tattoo FAQ are archived and crawled. We’ll just have to watch and see…
