Couldn’t tell you why…

…but tOFP is really beginning to score highly on very specific discipline-related searches:

fictional narrative – 4 of 4,950,000 (99.9999%tile)
narrative arc – 6 of 2,380,000 (99.9997%tile)
psychic distance – 7 of 3,140,000 (99.9997%tile)
prose style – 27 of 19,400,000 (99.9998%tile)

In the eyes of the great Google, tOFP has regained favor as a resource for understanding the narrative arc. The OFP illustration that was first the top ranking “narrative arc” picture in that search, then gone from the search entirely, has now re-emerged as the top illustration. No clue why. The site is also now the number two text return on a Google search for “narrative arc.” The site’s had a pretty steady page rank of five for the last few months, which I think is prety good. MIT OCW is an eight. Not surprisingly, Google finds itself to be a perfect ten. My new favorite toy for finding out such things, by the way, is iWebTool. […]
