Indexing and web search

On May 6, @Robert_Best and I did some webmastering, installing sitemap plugins on openlearning.cc (Grav) and discuss.openlearning.cc (Discourse). The last step was to add those properties to Google Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools.

Robert finally found a way to submit the sites the archive.org … although my understanding is that the Internet Archive tends to run months behind in indexing sites. This should happen over time.

Yesterday morning, I was doing a Google search – on “panarchy yin yang” – and a post on discuss.openlearning.cc showed up.

Many people worry about how information is organized on their web sites … but they don’t take into account all of the traffic that comes via search engines, rather than navigating down from the home page to a particular place.

This theme of search versus pre-categorization is described by David Weinberger (2007), Everything is Miscellaneous . The site at https://www.everythingismiscellaneous.com/ seem mostly incomplete, there’s more active blogging at https://www.hyperorg.com/blogger/ .
