Links Matter

Most of my sites and articles get incredibly high placement in Google given reasonably specific search terms, generally in the top 10. However, this site is quite new and isn’t really linked from anywhere yet, and the effects on Google searches have been surprising. Basically this site is invisible unless you throw in “”. This is true not just for topics where there’s a lot of competition like Ruby on Rails, but for much less obvious topics like Birding Venice. Google does have the site (though apparently not all the pages) in its index. It just doesn’t think it’s very important yet. Hopefully this will change as people begin to visit this site.
