Google Pages – Fast Lane into Google Search Index?!

The title of this post is not just hype, but a serious question.

Here is what happened.

I wrote and published 5 days ago on 4/24/2006 my article about my experiences and opinions about the current beta of Google’s new toy called Google Pages. Link to Full Article: Google Pages Demystified

It is now 4/29/2006, for only 3 hours, because it is right now 3:00 am in the morning here in Fresno/California. I got my usual email from GoogleAlerts.com at around 6:00 pm. GoogleAlerts.com is the commercial version of Google’s Free Service with the same name. It has some more features and options that the free version does not have. Anyhow, I use the service to monitor Google Search Results for important things that affect me personally or professionally, such a my Name, Artist Nick Name, Company Name, My Websites etc.

Here is what I looked at and had me read it twice.


The Account is now a bit over a week old and the content (5 Pages) is up for about 5 days now.

The Site is already in Google’s index and here it comes: outranking a lot of old sites for the same key-phrase. It ranked #17 and when I checked now in complete disbelieve, was it still #17. The Search Results are for my companies name, VisionOne,Inc. (#24 if you count the indent sub-results). It outranked almost a 100 other websites (our clients for the most part), with an estimated 487,000 Pages indexed by Google.

I am absolutely speechless. This is something for the SEO bloggers to blog about. Too bad that this blog is actually about Text Art and Fun Stuff and not SEO, butI I had to post it somewhere :).

That my Article links to it can’t be enough. It was posted on a few good ranking and Google trusted Sites, but that was 2-3 days ago. It was not like a home page feature at CNN or something like that. It was posted to Digg.com late at night 3 days ago and only 5 people dugg it which means that it never saw the light of the day there, not to mention it’s homepage.

I sent a link to the article to the Google Pages team as feedback after 2 previous emails with stuff that found its way into the article as well. The pages written are quite personal (some people start eating when they are unhappy about something and I start writing to get my mind busy with something else), hence Pulizer Price worthy content can’t be the reason for it either.

The whole thing became an article by accident and had nothing that would “boost” anything it links to. I simply pieced together and partially rewrote the bunch of comments and feedbacks that came together over a span of 2 days while I was playing with Google’s new Toy. I decided to make an Article out of it, because I realized, that all this stuff might be of interest for somebody. Anyhow …

The Point is, that I can not find any plausible reason to explain this. This blog and site is getting slowly Google’s attention after constant growth from an one-page Website for some years until last December to about 30-something pages or so during the last 4 months.

I know a thing or two about SEO (without doing it as profession), you can find out more about that on my professional home page, if you like (I have some nice free tools there too 😉 ).

Ideas, anybody? I need a little help here.
