Let us consider the following questions: When we use a spell-checker in our word-processing tool, and we want to use a word which is not in the dictionary, do we use the "Add to Dictionary" option?

This blog is ENTP

From the Coleface

Aside from the scepticism about how it actually works, I was tickled that my blog come up the same as my personal MBTI type. Based on the narrative I feel extra “charming and trend savvy” – although often on this blog I wonder just how grumpy I sound. I was also tickled by the idea that websites might use this to decide compatability for sites for reciprocal linking (a technique to improve search engine rankings).

Peer Review vs. Search Engine Places - Quality of Information in a Web 2.0 Sources

Tony Karrer

But what really caught my eye was the statement: For information-seekers using their favorite search engine, quality is simple to define. The comment I received on how it was decided was that my posts were in a blog not in a peer-reviewed publication. I almost responded, "but there are other links to blog posts" but luckily realized that might mean deleting links to other "good sources" (in my opinion) and loss of all links to sources that are critical of the term.

Important Notice to Blogger Blog Owners

Tony Karrer

Amazingly, I only recently found out that in transitioning from the old to new Blogger versions, Google was nice enough to add something to my blog: meta name="ROBOTS" content="NOINDEX,NOFOLLOW" This tells the search engine spiders to ignore your page. So, no search engine traffic and Google's blog search didn't work for me. It appears that lots of blogs have this. I really didn't want search engines finding my content.
