Quora and SEO

I had been on a tear with Quora, with one blog post alone generating 5,000+ reads. (About my youthful misadventures as a NY Times clerk.)

Google responded by placing my Quora “About Ed” page on the first page of “Ed Sussman” search results. Then, for reasons I don’t understand, Quora dropped to page two, then disappeared entirely. Not anywhere. Even when I search the exact URL on Google, it doesn’t show up.  The “About” page has been banished from search. I’ve broken some invisible Google rule.

The only thing that occurs to me is that when Slate re-ran the popular Times answer on their site, Google punished the repetition. In any case, here’s the link – maybe it will re-appear on day.
