Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

swamped by google

I was totally confused by all the extra traffic I started seeing yesterday especially since most of it was to a trackback entry.

It turns out I'm now the number one link for a google search for clevercactus. I hope this doesn't persist for too long, diego's got a very cool product and I have a very simple server.

It is weird that this happened, but considering that the release and all the links leading to it happened close to the last Google Dance (when Google rearranges its rankings massively) it's likely that not enough link information existed and he ended up first for whatever reason. It will probably be corrected when the clevercactus website is up, and as Google updates its rankings fully again at the end of the current "dance" (which started yesterday), or maybe the next one, since current results for that search on all eight datacenters shows the results changing but not by much. In the meantime, I can only hope Koz's site will hold up! :-) Thanks Koz for the pointer and the comments.
