Scott Hanselman

Google Juice? Hardly.

Can someone explain to me why in the name of all that is Google does a search for Scott Hanselman (even via Google Dance) that my LONG ABANDONED Radio Weblog shows up first?  For crying out loud, my posted-to-twice Longhorn Blog is second!  Sigh.  I'll need to keep paying Dave until I figure this out.

Well, keep linking to it (as above) and it'll stay there... ;)

Well, your Radio weblog has your name right in the title and so does your Longhorn Blog. ComputerZen.com doesn't have your name on it, as far as I can tell. The only place it exists is in an image and Google can't index that. :(

Hope that sheds some light on things.

Yep try putting your subtitle in the title of the page. You should also change the title of your permalink pages to the title of the post. Titles Matter[1][2].

P.S. One of my posts gets 6th billing for the phrase "titles matter" because it matches the title of one of my posts exactly.

Thanks for the link, Matt...I changed my site and the Titles are now shown in the title.

It seems that the changes you have made have taken effect. ComputerZen.com is now number one for your name. :)

Congrats!
