Abalastow Compendium

Abalastow-Compendium-Detail.pngMy buddy Dan has issued an SEO challenge to the students in his class. I thought it was pretty cool and could use some spice to see how base PageRank affects search rankings. I’m curious to see where I would fit in, so I put this post out there.

Google, come and get it.

I see the search results already have a hit from blog.lib.umn.edu. That is going to be tough since Google loves .edu and .org so much more than .com, but we’ll see.

No Wikipedia hits for Abalastow Compendium either.

The image at the right is what I imagine an antique Abalastow Compendium to look like.

Update (9/25/08): Proving some theory of the Internet™ or human behavior true some enterprising individuals have actually put a trump card and bought the Abalastow Compendium domain name, both the .com and even the .org version. Nobody grabbed .net it seems.

  1. Hey Jamie,
    Great talk in our class last week. I told a lot of people that the former CTO of MarketWatch spoke in our class. They were jealous they couldn’t be there.

    Anyway, since you seem to be in the business of posting links, how about one more? If you’ll notice, I am working on getting actual content on my site (more respectable than most empty sites so far) regarding my friends’ job search, so I think I deserve a link!

    Thanks again Jamie,

  2. Hey Jamie,
    First I want to thank you for presenting in our MGMT 3010 class. I was impressed with your down to earth, common sense approach to managing the companies in which you were involved.

    For the course abalastow compendium competition I grabbed an edu domain. I am anticipating that an edu domain will trump an org or com domain. We will see if the edu domain adds significant weight to my page rank. If you are willing, please consider adding a link to my Abalastow Compendium site.
