Sim64 SEO

Whilst tidying up earlier this week I cam across an old SEO competition page for Mangeur de Cigogne that was a .txt file

A lot of people wondered what I was doing at the time, mainly because they didn’t realise that despite it being a txt file and displaying as a txt file in most browsers, Google still saw it as HTML and followed all the links as normal.

It wasn’t really anything to do with the SEO Competition but was part of an experiment I was doing at the time to see which file extensions Google was indexing and how they treated them.

When I get time I will find all the old experiment pages and test again which are the best file extensions, I remember at the time Google had it’s own list of approx 20 and told us which they indexed and which they didn’t, my test was to see which were favoured over others.
