    EduGeek Blogs - Public or Private/EduGeek only?

    Hi All,

    I've done a bit of searching on this one but can't find anything! (It's probably more the case that everyone else is used to the concept of blogging and automatically knows the answer to my question anyway!)

    My question is:
    Once posted, do EduGeek blogs then get released in to the public (i.e. Will Google sniff them out and display them for keyword searces?), OR, once posted are they only ever available to registered EduGeek users?

    I don't think I'm going to become a prolific blogger, but I was just about to create one and wondered who might actually get to see it!

    Cheers

    /me logs out, looks at some blogs, finds they are public, and logs back in.

    Besides, even if they were members only, getting an account is trivial.

    I dont think they do get picked up by google, as i just search for some of the topics in the edugeek blog on google and it did not pick any of them up, if i put a blog title and edugeek into the search it tends to find nothing.

    So the answer to your questions from my point of veiw is no google does not pick up topics/content on the edugeek blogs

    BUT

    If you know of Edugeek, and you know of the BLOGs section you can read the blogs even if you NOT a member.

    If you're going to vent about your school / work colleagues, etc then remain as anonymous as possible in terms of your username and profile. That should do the trick!



    I know my LEA uses Edugeek but I don't worry too much. They know who I am and how outspoken I can be.

    I'm sure anyone could figure any of us out if they really wanted to / tried hard enough, but it's useful to know how easy it is (or not!)

    Thanks to all who took the time to reply
