Pingree's Potato Patch
Studying the Economics of Detroit

I just took a stab at seeing how well this site is ranked on Google under the phrase economics of Detroit. Not too surprisingly given the relatively brief tenure of the Potato Patch, it isn't great; it doesn't even appear in the top 500 entries. Surprisingly, though, the link to here from the front page of my domain shows up as entry 86. Given what I've read over the last few years about Google putting newer pages into a "sandbox" until they have shown some longevity, it's likely that the Patch's spot in the rankings won't be too bad a few months from now. On the positive side, however, I did discover that there are some sites I should check out and potentially link to.
