Sadly, after a week…Blogger is winning.  I won’t lie, I was really pulling for WordPress in my little test a week ago called “Which blog will win?

But this is only a week, and I said I would give it two.  Actually, WordPress (this blog) was indexed first, so really it had the advantage for a short bit…but that was lost.

Which Blog Will Win?

Also, as you can see in the pic, I didn’t have a setting in place yet on this new blog to put the blog title in the post name.  I think this might have been a factor in ranking, because it’s clearly indexed and clearly not helping in any way.  This problem has been solved…and we’ll see what the week 2 results bring in.

Also:  Neither blog show up when searching in the top 100 of Google.  To get either blog to appear, you have to search using parentheses for the exact phrase.  I feel this….sucks.  Because really the whole point of this was to use the question in a title and show up #1.

We’ll see what happens in a week!
