Which Blog Platform does the best in Search Engines?

SEO by on March 28, 2007 at 7:23 pm

Inspired by Matt’s humorous experiment, I decided to run a test to see which blog platform is best wired for search engines.

I’ve written posts with similar length and keyword densities at the three major platforms and on a new domain:

I used the default settings in each blog platform, and the links above are the first links to the new blogs on the web. The hosted services may have internal linking structures set up, but this is also part of the test.

I’ll judge the results of the analysis by two factors:

  1. Time to inclusion in the search engines. The quicker that a blog gets into the search engines the better.
  2. Relative ranking of the pages. The higher the better.
Oh, and if for some bizarre reason you want to link to these pages, please link to all four equally.
