Alister Cameron has a very interesting post on ProBlogger about how Google Blogsearch indexes your blog posts.
While it’s a very long post, it talks about some really important areas where you can work to improve your blog’s performance on Google Blogsearch.
For those who don’t want to read Alister’s full post, here are the main factors that Alister suggests affect your Google Blogsearch rankings:
- Number of RSS subscriptions in Google Reader
- Number of clicks on your posts in existing search results
- How many and which blogrolls you are listed on
- How your post is tagged
- How much your content is discussed in GMail and Google Talk
