    For such a "small" site, it's amazing to me that a routine search of RJ thread topics return quite high on the Google totem pole.

    Examples--I picked topics randomly from each subforum, and ALL the following searches have RJ on the first page of searches (and this is with me NOT signed into Gmail):

    "People with Big Houses"
    "What's on your mind? Post it."
    "Closet Keynesians"
    "turns out i'm part alien"
    "BEST feature of GUY above you"
    "Sleep boxes--anyone tried them yet?"
    "The Theory of Evolution in Less Than Two Minutes"

    And I'm sure we've all see FTF's butt picture on Google search.icon_lol.gif

    Anybody have an explanation?icon_question.gif

    I dunno, but that makes as much sense as the countless image searches I've done that show up with results from SecondLife.

    You don't have to be signed into Gmail for Google to keep track of your search history.

    For example, I don't use Bing, when I typed in "People with Big houses" in Bing, I did not see Real Jock in the first 5 pages. I stopped looking after that. But it work the same way as when you search for products and then you see advertisements for those products on RJ.

    Could be that this site uses Google Adsense. So naturally this site gets indexed regularly. Actually, regularly and quickly. I've seen topics show up on search results in under 20 minutes from the time it was posted.

    And add to the fact that the Google algorithm favors original content, such as forums and blogs. That's why you see so many spammers target blog comments and discussion forums.

    Stupid Haendel, I have to go all the way to page 13 before a search for Ariodante on Google yields my profile and not something related to the opera.
