We recently made an attempt to appear as a top result for a trending Twitter topic (#ThingsIAintDoneYet) on Google, and it seemed like we should post the results of this little experiment. They are complete and abject failure, compounded with a sense of our own insignificance and a side order of indifference.
It turns out that, much to no one’s surprise, trending Twitter topics are viewed much like edible underwear to a starving, fashion-conscious nymphomaniac – they’re gobbled up very, very quickly. So not only did we fail to appear in the top results, we failed to appear at all in the full 25 pages of results.
One could argue that, being a gaming computer company, posting about PC Gamer would net us higher relevance (that being the post that prompted the experiment), but we choose to view this as an indictment of unscrupulous forces who had the same idea but do it better. We also choose to view the letter “Q” as an offense to right-thinking people everywhere, so you may want to take our opinions with a grain of salt.
