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.
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!
