Domain History as Revealed by Webmaster Tools Timeline
  1. Right before Thanksgiving, renewed domain for 10 years.
  2. Over Thanksgiving, pages started showing up in index
  3. In early December, noticed that pages showed up in index after an hour after posting (this is not necessarily a sign of short latency; could be timing coincidence); cache takes a little longer to show up in index (seems like it is 8 hours)
  4. In mid December, saw first external links from two pages with PR 3. One had a nofollow and the other didn't. It will be interesting to track the PR of the linked to page
    -UPDATE: one of the external links was removed

  1. Report shows that most pages are US_ASCII even though they are UTF8 in the html source
  2. Unable to remove navbar-iframe

Browser dev tools
  1. in ~/.mozilla/firefox/oa3go87g.default/chrome/userContent.css add the following to highlight nofollow
    a[rel~="nofollow"] {border: thin dashed firebrick ! important;background-color: rgb(255, 200, 200) ! important;}
  2. install pagerank extension, developer toolbar and livehttp headers
  3. to see noindex, a searchmonkey script needs to be installed
