New website tracking with Google
Friday, April 14, 2006
This is a little experiment to see how long my new website Exclusive Escapes takes to be first found, indexed, cached and finally ranked by Google.
The website isn't actually ready yet, but while we are working on it's content and layout I have put up a "coming soon" page. My theory is that the sooner something occupies the space on the server at www.exclusiveescapes.com.au, the sooner Google will notice something new. The page I have uploaded has META Keywords, Description and the content, although very short at present, contains the main keywords we will be targeting.
Domain Name registered: 10th April 2006
Temporary Page Uploaded: 11th April 2006
Google Sitemap added : 11th April 2006
Page Rank bar goes white: 13th April 2006
This, I believe indicates that Google has at least found the page.
First links added from PR5 page (this one): 14th April 2006
Well, that's as far as it has got at present, I intend to follow it's progress and document it here to see how long it takes to get cached ranked and ultimately how it's PR progresses, I will also be including results from Live PR as it will update far more regularly than Google's main PR figure.
