New tricks for an old dog.

Does Google index Tumblr?

That is the question I have, and here is the test with my recemtly created Tumblr web presence and stylish publishing opportunity, that I call Ephemerality. I like the sound of it.

So, after creating the blog with a few borrowed quotes and one entirely original post titled, Does Google index this blog?, I creae a few conspicuous links to the Tumblr blog as a whole and a few links to the specific blog post.

After I do that, I sit and I wait.

— oOo —

Update: August 20, 2010

So far, no luck. I made about a dozen links to my Tumblr blog, but I have not been posting much original content there – just syndication feeds from other blogs. This evening I installed Google Analytics and I will soon claimownership of the blog on Google Webmaster’s Tools. Maybe that will make a difference.
