And so it begins

PaTriton, good point about the Title. Also thanks for the historical update.
I should have noted before that the release dates were done from memory...very losely. lol

Bamnsour, good catch. I obviously don't know enough about the Google methodology because I would have thought that caching the page would occur simultaneously with ranking it.
I don't see a change yet in our listing, and the PR is still a meager 3.

Also interesting is that we lost 10 references and are now down to 3,140.

But it means things are happening and we will be seeing some results soon. Drumroll please!

Okay - what is the difference between the Yahoo search engine and the google search engine. I see we have made strides on google - I believe for Baan erp we are now at position 100. But on Yahoo - I pretty much had to type in baanboard to find an actual link to www.baanboard.com. All the other places were sites with links to baanboard.com.

Patrick,

Thanks for the historical info. I updated the start page. Does anybody else have some more info on the release dates of the older Baan versions?

The TITLE tag is actually used but does not show up in the page source. Strange. Will have to investigate that.

Baan timeline

I did a little googling for an accurate Baan timeline and I found this really great source of information. It only goes back to 3.1, but at least it appears to be accurate.

Ranking Report

I found an excellent tool to measure our progress in the form of Agent Web Ranking
  • baan
  • baan erp
  • baan help
  • baan community
I tested the keywords on the following searchengines:
  • AltaVists
  • AOL
  • Google
  • MSN
  • Yahoo

I posted the results on my daily baanboard ranking page

Take a look. There is plenty to discuss. It also confirms Mark's findings.

A bit strange that the combo 'baan community' was picked so quickly and transformed into a nr 1 position. I also note the higher scoring on MSN which could be related to the relentless pounding of the MSN searchbot on our site over the last couple of months.

I think yahoo and altavista use the same engine. Went to see what the submit a site was about(for rankings) but keep getting blocked from work will have to see what it is about from home.

Altavista = Yahoo and AOL = Google

They will be taken of the report.

I will also limit the results to the first 20 pages instead of 50.

I submitted baanboard in the Yahoo search engine.

Pat,
Baanboard was the #1 "Baan Community" before we started this little project. See previous posts.

MSN is showing movement. As a matter of fact, it is the only SE where our position has changed (for the better).

I will post the new ranking report later today.

Is there some way to get some weightage to "Baan forum". That is what I am likely to search.

Question Silly Questions!

Can ranking be bought or at least solicited? Or put another way: How did SSA Global land the first Place for "Baan" Keyword? They are not that long in Baan-Business!

Or finally: Does "playing the Google Game" mean giving the Google Hotline a friendly call as well to explain our situation?

A little late, but here is today's score

http://www.admiralsolutions.biz/baanboard/bb051104.htm

Included 'baan forum', forgot to remove Altavista.

Highlights:
AOL - lost our 93 ranking for 'baan erp'...gone.
Google - no change
MSN - 'baan erp' up to 48 from 52, 'baan help' down to 67 from 62.
Yahoo! - 'baan forum' put us on the map.

Also, our pagerank is still at 3.

We're doing something wrong.

Here is the PR algorithm:
PR(A) = (1-d) + d (PR(T1)/C(T1) + ... + PR(Tn)/C(Tn))
where PR(A) is the PageRank of a page A
PR(T1) is the PageRank of a page T1
C(T1) is the number of outgoing links from the page T1
d is a damping factor in the range 0 < d < 1, usually set to 0.85

So really we can't build our own PR, because it is largely determined by the PR of the sites linking to US.

We need a few big sites linking to us. I know that companies with high PageRank for their sites post on Baanboard to recruit people. Since Baanboard provides them a place to do that for free, could we request them to place a link on their websites?

Results for 11/07

Accidently named them 1106. Oh well.
http://www.admiralsolutions.biz/baanboard/bb051106.htm

Highlights:
'baan erp' is doing good on Google. We jumped from 92 to 53. That's 4 pages!!

There is movement, but not as much as I had anticipated.

So far I found one major flaw in our little scheme. The sig-line link-back from the forums is pointless. All the forum pages have a PR of 0, so PR(T1) being zero they add exactly nothing to our score.

However, here is a thought. Any new page always starts off with a PR of 1. If we have 10 new pages, each with a PR of 1, with only a single outgoing link (to baanboard), then we should get an additional 8.5 points if the above algorithm is correct.
Sounds too easy.
