articles of mine that have made the front page of Google for somewhat popular technical terms
In mid-2015 I realized that some articles I'd written had made the front page of Google searches for somewhat popular technical terms. Who wouldda thunk? I've been meaning to brag about this.
As I'm bragging, some things to keep in mind:
- When I give a rank of 10, that means the last item of the first page of Google for that keyword
- I define "t1" (time 1) and such below the tables
- I don't write articles for a living, nor do I do SEO. In part because of this, I'm not motivated to do all the things that it takes to "defend" my rank. I'm satisfied to brag about my highest known rank and leave it at that.
- I'm giving the rank that I see by doing the Google keyword search myself, as opposed to what Google Search Console says, which is usually a better rank.
