Hiding This Blog

This blog is open for anyone to read – but isn’t visible to search engines. How then will people find the blog? On my UK Web Focus blog I have described ways of raising the visibility of blogs and blog posts. It would therefore be an interesting experiment to see if not promoting a blog results in nobody visiting it.

Blog owners may discover this blog if I link to a post and they capture trackbacks – and this seemed to have happened recently. So in order to experiment with an open but invisible blog I intend not to link to blog posts, but to include the URL as text.
