Ranking Experiment

    Okay, I'm bored this morning, so I have a proposal for an experiment... Someone pick a key phrase and we'll see if the co-op actually can affect rankings in Google or not without doing anything else.

    Hmmm... something that gets more searches per day than computer magazine would be more interesting I think.

    Hmmm... I want to do something quick and be done with it, rather than wait a long time... Books is probably one of those keywords that there won't be anything to look at for weeks.

    Yarn is an interesting one though... gets a decent number of searches per day.

    How about laptop computers? That should do some volume.

    If you are bored, maybe you can send me up some Fred's or EZ-J's? Pretty please. I am going through withdrawls, I need my fix.

    An interesting experiment Shawn but to make it worthwhile I think you should do it in secret. That way you can be sure that the results will not be effected by extraneous links placed maliciously or otherwise. Also you might like to consider having more than one such experiment in order to test the hypothesis that the results are reproducible.

    We wouldn't have to know the site until later in the experiment...we can know the term though.

    How will we not know if a site suddenly appears in the coop network with a lot of weight behind it?

    Consider a charity of some kind if you are going to do it.
    AIDS would be my choice right now.

    I think we should do something that can potentially make money.

    Okay... how about two different experiments. One for a new page on a sub-domain that never existed. And a separate one that points ads towards some sort of charity site for a term they don't rank well for already already (obviously no on-site optimization going on there).

    ...and for the record, this is not about making money. :)

    Nice one. There are plenty out there that need the help and one day it could be any of us in a bad situation. Anything I can do to help?

    Personally, I think that is a waste of time.

    We need to do a new site and contend with the sandbox. That is a real life situation that we all go through.

    That would actually provide valuable data for everyone that creates sites.
