It's weird how Google works. Emily, my girlfriend, has a blog about pottery. It's got a good domain name. There's actually no other pottery blogs out there, and not many artist blogs in general. But it comes out at like 13 for "pottery blog". (Yahoo, though, does much better and puts her at number 2.) I fear some of this is because blogging is a network thing, and there's no network of artist bloggers.
(This post, of course, is just a thinly veiled attempt to help her out -- if anyone feels like slipping her a del.icio.us link or something she'd like that too ;)
I made a link. (Actually, it's a thinly-veiled attempt to get some help in the future.)
I was browsing through my web site statistics yesterday and noticed that the 9th most popular search keyphrase was '555-5555-1212'. Try it in google! Those people probably aren't interested, but sometimes a post about an almost unrelated topic (like Jumpstart.) can lead a lot of people in.
It seems it's #2 for "pottery blog" now... :-)
