Due to my blatant SEO hacking ProgClub has finally made it to page 3 of search results for programmers’ club. Go team! :)
ProgClub aspires to be *the* Programmers’ Club. So first we get page 3, then we get page 1, then we get first result. Sound like a good plan?
You can help by blogging about ProgClub or linking to our Programmers’ Club page from your blog or your web-site. The text of your link should be “Programmers’ Club”, and you should link to the http://www.progclub.org/wiki/Programmers’_Club page.
p.s. We’re on page 2 for good programmers’ club and we’re on page 2 for the programmers’ club (page 1 in Australia: the programmers’ club).
p.p.s. I posted some more information on how I went about the SEO process.
p.p.p.s. I followed up with some more commentary about the best way to link to ProgClub.
ProgClub is number one for programmer “good club”, cooler than progsoc and progclub. The results for programmers’ club and good programmers’ club are appalling — we’re nowhere to be seen (and the results for those queries are pretty useless, it’d make more sense if we were listed).
Friggin’ Googlebot is crawling all over pcrepo, even though I told it NOT TO DO THAT. My robots.txt file has been updated to disallow svnro for most of the day. Google really should have a facility for web-masters to be able to force a reload of robots.txt in Googlebot. They’re going to hit me thousands of times before this is over. :(
