in reply to Perlmonks Visibility

Actually, I gotta say that 14th out of 12.3 million ain't bad. :) We could probably claw up a few places with a linking campaign but why bother? I think we should be more worried about some of the crud that pops up when you put in "learning perl" or "beginning perl".

There is some really bad advice in the top 50 for each of those. Google needs -- and ++ buttons...

P.S. Why are people downvoting this guy's post? It was a good, honest question. This site rules, people should know about it. Can't fault the guy for believing that...

$you = new YOU;
honk() if $you->love(perl)

    Thanks for clearing out my point extremely.

    Yeh, google's ranking for perlmonks is not a big issue as it is made here. I like to know in general how people come to know about wonderfulness of the site from outside, before even joining the community or reaching to the site. I agree that server load is currently a major issue not to advertize visibility and we have users joining daily, but I am not just talking abot perl. I am talking about the community culture that is developed here and that should get visibility as well. There could be pros and cons to that which I like to hear.
