There was an article in the newspaper here about the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco last week. The article featured “blekko.com, a web search engine that allows users to limit searches to high-quality, trusted websites”.

Call me vain, or obsessed with one discipline, but I put “liturgy” into blekko.com and… YAY!!! this site comes up as number one. (With my liturgy twitter profile at number five).

Then it gets interesting…
Click on SEO (same as searching for “http://www.liturgy.co.nz/ /seo”) and I discover I have 32,845 inbound links, and 8,308 pages (clearly I have too much time on my hands!) I appear to have a lot of duplicate material offsite. In spite of trying to follow the instructions, I cannot work out who has what duplicate content from my site! Other information is scary to behold – I am always surprised at how much information appears to be publicly available. With a little bit of effort you should be able to work out how often I brush my teeth and what my preferred toothpaste is. Certainly, anyone interested in websites will be taking a close look at what is provided through this search engine without effort.
