I just realized today if you search up info on the "1000 member secret progressive group" that was uncovered a lil while ago, my post is ranked 3 on google search.

And if you search up "1000 member secretive progressive group" I am ranked 19 in search results for my forum post on here. That was the wording that was used in most news organizations.

I am wondering how this is possible that I can seemingly outrank bigger news organizations about this or bigger blogs or whatever? It wasn't that widely reported on I understand that I guess. My forum post got about 2,100 views.


this was the original thread. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=728166.0


So is there something going on here in the background with people commenting on my topic = like an extra meta tag added to each of their posts? Like when you meta tag a web page so google can index it and classify what the page is about, does each post add a new meta tag so it seems more important on these forums? So I got like 25 responses, did each response make my post appear higher ranked then?

Just wondering!


Thanks Smiley

We just seem to be pretty popular. The Fappening thread on here was ranked like the third hit on google or something.

Google searches are personalized, this forum will show up higher in results because you visit here.

1. Meta tags do not have any effect on SEO anymore.
2. As BadBear said, personalized search will affect search results. Use some form of private browsing or set your preferences if you want to check without personalized search.
3. Forum threads with lots of fresh content rank pretty well.

I had a friend try this also, he doesn't go on this forum and he verified with me that my posts were showing up in the same rank as I was seeing them. I even tried it at my work and on my smart phone and it still shows up that way to me.

I know in the back of my mind that there is something to the personalized search and it coincides with my main computer at home. Just curious as to why it shows up over other posts. Maybe because some of those other posts didn't get as many comments on the news websites? So then comments make a huge difference I assume.

IDK.

In the sitemap system that I wrote, more active topics get higher priority. Google says that they only use that to compare between different pages on the same site, though.

I think that Google especially likes the forum for new stuff because the sitemap makes it easy for them to quickly crawl new topics. They seem to have trouble parsing pages completely, though, which sometimes hurts search placement.
