Firstly, if we could be a tenth as successful as Perl that would be great.
Secondly, the above has nothing to do with whether it's in a new domain or not
and everything to do with how often those blogs are linked to from the outside
world. I've never heard of them which tells you something about how heavily
referenced they are.
In any case search engine optimization is a mugs game. Concentrate on building
a service that people want to use and people will talk about it and that will
get you on the search engines. Search engines follow, they don't lead.
