After a bit of concern that google wasn't indexing my new pages (since I updated the blog software used on this site), I was happily surprised when I noticed this:

Nah - I still think Google's ignoring you! :-)

Heal Your Church Website just wrote about the issue of meaningful links. I posted a comment on how a friend of mine defines his links like you do and three days after my friend posted something on his site the post was number two on Google. I'm going to work on changing how my dynamic links are generated to where they are more Google friendly.

Sorry about the XML error. It seems certain links tend to cause them, and I'm going to have to try to find out which ones, and why.

Anyway, something really weird is going on - the page no longer comes up on google, apparently at all. It's like it's not even indexed anymore. Wonder what that's all about?

Edit: Nevermind, it's back. Must have been a hickup in google's system. All's good. ;)

oh wow... this is off topic but is this just an illusion or do these boxes actually grow 1 - 2px when you click in them when they are hylighted. I mean the actual area inside of the box seems to grow. This is freaking me out man!!!

Yes, I definitely think the new URLs that this system uses will be better all-around. Not only will they be easier for users to remember, but they should be better for search engine rankings. I've got a bit more research to do, but from what I've heard so far, it would be better to use - than _ in the URLs, as well. Once I'm sure, I may begin doing that as well. We'll see.

I don't see in the first ten pages of results. Did I miss something?

Yes, but I have no idea what.

My google ranking is going all over the place - from number one, to what appears to be not even indexed at all. I have no clue what's going on, but I sure would like to. sigh

It's called "Google Brandy" that is why you keep jumping in rank, etc.
