I made a site for stats on the Redscowl Blusingsky contest. Its located here
Basically every 4 hours it queries multiple data centers takes the averages for ranks with safe search set to off, removes duplicates per domain or sub domain and produces the TRUE STANDINGS.
This of course is not the “official results” page but I also put in some extra stuff like Yahoo! back links. Yahoo back links seem to show up almost instantly unlike Google where it could take 2-3 months to see a publicly displayed back link.
So what are we learning from these results?
There are many many many well respected and what should be highly weighted domains that made pages to see where they would rank for this contest. Digitalpoint, V7n, Threadwatch, just about ever site that should rank for any term has made some sort of entry.
Look at the results and what do you see though? All of these new domains (registered just mere months ago) are outranking all these supposed “authority” sites. Also all of of the top results are spam stuffed keyword domains.
To the people who really understand how it works this is nothing new but to the newbies seeking the truth the proof is in the pudding. Here are some myths this shatters.
- Domains have to be registered at least 2 years to rank in serps
- Domains that use anonymous registration information will not rank well in serps
- Domains that are new can’t out rank old ones
- Domains with keywords in url don’t count much (lol)
