Big massive argy bargy on the e-business mailing list of late with the moderators shutting down discussion in the end. All around the new offering from Omniserve which offers a very cheap way (and I consider it good value for money) for a business to get a website designed and up online quite quickly and designed well for search engine indexing. So far so good.
Well. Apart from the claim that they have a rapid submission tool that will get you indexed by Google within minutes. Now that’s subtle. Well. It’s marketing. Old style. Read the smallprint. It’s not in the live Google index. Nor the results, it means Google will check out your website quickly.
Today Eoin Costello explained how this rapid submission tool works… he links to you from the company blog. Yes, it’s a blog link. Again for those down the back. This Rapid Submission Tool is a link from a blog. Google visits his blog every few minutes, it follows links he creates. Bam, your site is indexed but not in the index.
Isn’t Fluffy links from this blog doing the same thing? Google visits this site every few minutes too. Want to be indexed by Google within minutes? Sign up for the Fluffylinkulator now!
People were well entitled to query what this “tool” was about and whether this “technology” was credible but people on the eBusiness list got the bullshit answer (not from Eoin mind) that you see the Government make “talking Ireland down” when people give out about jobs, the housing market, broadband and everything else. It now appears that questioning means you are talking things down.
