Hey, it’s Coffee Calendar Google ranking excitement! As I mentioned in some earlier posts my wife’s Brother-in-law Ricardo has a great Coffee Calendar, a project he has worked on for some time that features some great art and history.
Helping him attain a proper Google rank for his site TheCoffeeCalendar.com offers up some neat lessons in how Google ranks websites – perhaps most importantly how blogs have come to be a very critical factor in some rankings.
Artist Mike Rohde also has a neat “Sketchtoon” Coffee Calendar he has done for 2008. Where Ricardo’s Coffee Calendar focuses more on history, Mike’s focuses on the actual coffee drinks. Both would make a neat gift for any coffee lover in your life so check them both out!
Mike’s Calendar has the top Google spot now and I think this is a good example of Google favoring blog content over an actual website devoted to the Coffee Calendar. Ricardo’s site was recently launched and thus I’m guessing Mike’s blog is given higher authority at Google when “Coffee Calendars” are getting discussed. Since this blog appears to have more authority than Mike’s it’ll be interesting to see if this post has any affect on the rankings.
In the meantime, pick a Coffee Calendar and a fresh picked pound of coffee beans as a neat gift for the coffee lover in your life.
Thanks for the mention Joe. I found it very interesting that Ricardo and I are holding the top 2 spots in Google’s results for “coffee calendar” right now.
Have to keep an eye on those results over time and see how they fare.
Whatever the case, I’m honored to share the page with a cool guy like Ricardo. 🙂
Thanks for checking in Mike and good luck with your excellent calendar this year!
Joe, looks like you bumped Ricardo’s site to number 3, with this blog post. You own the number 2 spot now. 🙂
Whoops…this should only last a few days – Google is supposed to be looking at the linking!
Hmmm – now this post is number one for “Coffee Calendar”, perhaps adding the linked image boosted the rank. More likely is that this blog has higher authority than the other sites so all the talk about “coffee calendars” has boosted it to the top temporarily. Eventually the link patterns – ie power of total sites referencing a page using the term “coffee calendar” should prevail.
