SE results of new site launch

I was worried of the new site launch, hearing stories of site falling off of search engines because of the new navigation. Pages have move. To a spider, the page disappeared. And a new page exists. Therefore any benefit of that file over time is lost. So I made some provisions to my site to overcome this obstacle. And so far so good, webveteran.com is doing so much better than it ever has – in all major search engines.

Results

Using Advanced Web Ranking, I compared the night of the launch with the next days. The site went live on the February 18 2007. Here is the comparison to the February 21 2007.

Lots of green plus signs in there =)
If you see a plus with no number, it means I didn’t exist for that search before. This is great.
