RinR has been experiencing a relative flood of hits in the past 24 hours. A quick late night examination of the access logs revealed nothing new except the obvious — “more hits”. This morning, a closer examination revealed the Iraq Playing Cards article had been receiving a majority of the hits. It turns out that if you search Google for “Iraq Playing Cards” that RinR is the first non-paid for link and I have no idea why.
My simplistic assumption has always been that Google’s page rank was somehow based on a count of the number of links to a site/topic. I find it difficult to believe that RinR’s playing card blurb is somehow cutting edge. The brief article appeared days after the cards were originally presented via traditional media and my assumption was they had been talked about at length in the weblogosphere.
This turn of events is handy as I’ve had a Google article bubbling around my head for a few days and now I have even more reason to commit it to the keyboard. If you’ve got insider Google knowledge that explains our new found hits or even just a kooky theory, I’d like to hear it.
