It was a nice surprise to find out that Wish web site appears on the first page (ranked 8th) of Google.com.au search result for the word ‘wish’. Yes, that’s right. ‘wish’, that’s it, just the 4-letter word.
And it’s currently ranked 5th on google.com. Whoa! That’s a superb result considering that the site does not have the word ‘wish’ itself as part of the domain name (mbledug.com) or even a sub domain, and ‘wish’ only appears as a context path in the full URL http://mbledug.com/wish . Plus it doesn’t hurt to have other sites linking to Wish, like Lifehacker.
There are currently 1800+ submitted wishes, which means there are probably about 1800+ times the word ‘wish’ appear on the site. Is content still king? It probably still is.
Here’s the rank list for various Google local domains of several English-speaking countries.
