From a technical POV, a rebsite wouldn't be difficult for Google to
search - it just needs to look at the script's header. I doubt
they'll bother till there's millions of scripts about though.
Out of curiousity, I've just been using Google to try and find REBOL
scripts and a search for "rebol .r" (without the speechmarks) ranked
my solar-sim reblet at 5. Like it's had about 50 hits and been
online for all of two weeks and it's at number 5 in a search for
?!? It's also the first link shown with a .r extension.
So, what's different about my reblet? Well, because of the way my
host handles REBOL scripts, (they have to have a .r extension), I
couldn't have the reblet's page point to a script with a .r extension
as it'd generate an error. So I gave the script a .reblet extension
and the reblet's page a .r instead of .html. (Yes, it's a REBOL
script too, hence its counter.)
Moral of the story? HTML with a .r extension can get listed high by
Google, whereas scripts with a .r extension don't seem to.
I'm now toying with the idea of changing the .reblet extension on the
script to .html to see what happens. ;-)
