In early April when the mesothelioma $100 a click story broke in the Wall Street Journal I wrote a piece for Tech Central Station. As part of that story I set up a blog called Mesothelioma Attorney at blogspot and put ad sense on. I submitted it to Yahoo! and Google on the same day and have been updating it since.
It took exactly ten days for Yahoo! to put the blog #10 on the top page for the search "mesothelomia attorney".
Which suggests two things: first, Yahoo is paying attention and its free submission is worth doing. Second, it is looking for fresh content.
So far nothing from Google.
