I’m very new to search analytics, so I’m trying lots of different things to get a fuller understanding. One thing I noticed today is that Google’s Blog Search is not pulling up results for my blog as well as the main Google Web Search is. This differs from my experience a week or two ago, when Blog Search seemed to be picking up items within minutes.
Searching for “Spire Viro” in Google Web Search brings back two results from Xidey in the the top three results, including a recent result from today at 11:28:57 GMT (about 18 hours ago). That cached page contains a post whose title begins “Spire Viro” and whose sole tag is “Spire Viro”.
Odd. Something is going on.
For what it’s worth, Technorati Blog Search sucks goose eggs for the same search term, and WordPress.com doesn’t have a built-in search function to compare against.
