Missin' the loooove.

Hello!?!?!? How about a little love from the folks over at
Jewish Week?

Okay, so I come up #128 on the Google search for [orthodox jewish blog].

But I come in ahead of Shmuley, even!!!

Of course, he wasn't in the article either. So maybe that's not such a good point.

I also come in ahead of AidelMaidel, who did get mentioned. But there's probably another search, like maybe "Jewish Blogs that People Actually Read."

Okay, I just did that search. AidelMaidel comes in soemwhere around 600, and I, erm... well... don't so much show up at all.

Well, let's fix that right now:

Jewish Blogs that People Actually Read!
Hey, If you're into Jewish Blogs and you, like, Actually Read them, and you're a People, you would be interested in reading THIS, which is a Jewish Blog that People Actually Read.

I know this has nothing to do with my daughter, or with how my Judaism informs my being a father...

Oh well.

[UPDATE] Seems the Google Dance has a sense of humor.  I now come in 168 on the "Orthodox Jewish Blog" search, lower than I was and way behind Shmuley and AidelMaidel.  Maybe if I look up "tying self-esteem to blog hits and google rank."  (Which I just did.  Can you believe there aren't more hits on that search!?)

Type in FRUM DAD and you come in first. Type in Willow Green and you get a lot of trees before you get to me.

It's all how you look at it!

How do you find out the ranking anyway?

I set Google for "show 100 per page" or something, use Ctrl-F to find the "Frum Dad" text I'm looking for (or "Willow Green," or whatever). Then I kinda guestimate, and tweak the URL to lock it down.

So I searched "willow green" (no quotes), by 100's. Then Ctrl-F for "blogspot." You weren't on page 1, 2, 3, or 4, but there you were on page 5.

The URL is:

You can tweak the "start=###" to get it with you on top, at least until the next Google dance.

If you change it to 451, you come up on top of that list, which shows "Results 452 - 551"

(here's the whole URL:

If you change the "num=###" you can change the number of hits on a page.

Frum Dad comes up number one so don't feel bad. My blog is way down there somewhere. Posted this twice, I don't know what happened the first time.

Anyway, it is all in how you look at it.

Take care

You have to refresh your browser.
Of course, you won't see this unless you've figured that out already.

It was something funky because I had refreshed. I do that almost by habit as so often I can't read my own blogs latest entry unless I refresh.

Again, when i looked to see if there were comments, there was a zero, but this time when i clicked on the comments I saw them.

The computer world is full of weird events. Who knows?
