Still ranked 6. Google has picked up my new blog title and my previous post. The current list looks like this: RP’s (robert pate’s) on the White Pages, an RP on linkedIn, an RP on Facebook, the RP wikipedia entry, the RP Cal State page (cstv), and then me. If you’re testing your own stuff don’t forget to clear your cookies or just open a private browser session. Google will customize your results otherwise.
Next question: Should I 301 or 302 from robertpate.net to robertpate.net/blog? hanselman.com uses a 301, but I haven’t run across a lot of other blogs doing the same. Currently I’m using a 302.
I think I’ll test that next. While I worry that doing a 301 redirect may make my root domain less potent if I ever added content there, I will do it anyway, for science!
