Abalastow Compendium

My buddy Dan has issued an SEO challenge to the students in his class. I thought it was pretty cool and could use some spice to see how base PageRank affects search rankings. I’m curious to see where I would fit in, so I put this post out there. Google, come and get it.

I see the search results already have a hit from blog.lib.umn.edu. That is going to be tough since Google loves .edu and .org so much more than .com, but we’ll see.

No Wikipedia hits for Abalastow Compendium either.

The image at the right is what I imagine an antique Abalastow Compendium to look like.

Update (9/25/08): Proving some theory of the Internetβ„’ or human behavior true some enterprising individuals have actually put a trump card and bought the Abalastow Compendium domain name, both the .com and even the .org version. Nobody grabbed .net it seems.*
