Spintax and Google Page One: Update

About a month ago, we posted an entry on spintax, and how a little Velocity magic could enable spintax processing within a *form Task. A few days later, we posted another entry on how that initial entry ended up on the first page of Google search results for the word spintax, which we thought was pretty amazing at the time. We posted that second entry for two reasons: 1) just to tell the world what happened with that first entry, and 2) as an experiment to see if we could duplicate the results of the first. Now that over a month has gone by since that first entry was posted, the time has come to do another Google search on the word spintax and see how things turned out.

As of this morning, a direct link to the original article still appears on the first page, but it is the very last entry on the page, which is several notches down from where it originally appeared on that first day. However, the #1 entry on the page is one of the references to that page that was generated by *forms at the time the original entry was posted. So, technically, on the first page of Google search results, there are actually two references to the article, one direct and one indirect.

You won’t find any reference to second entry until the fourth page though, and just like the original, an indirect reference shows up at the top of the page, and the direct link to the article doesn’t appear until you get down to the bottom of the page. Earlier, the second article had shown up as high as page #2, but our little experiment to reproduce the original results never actually made it to page #1, and never pushed the first article off of page #1, even now, a month later. So, ultimately, we were able to come close to repeating the earlier results, but the second attempt was never able to eclipse the first. Page #2 is not bad, when you are actually trying, but page #1 was even better, particularly since we weren’t even giving that any thought at the time that we put it out.
