I love you. I worship you, so it comes with great pain to ask you the following.
Please come up with a way for irrelevant WordPress.com blog posts to stay out of my WordPress searches.
I don’t know how to do this myself, other than by restricting my searches to remove WordPress.com from the results, which is self-defeating as I’m on WordPress.com. A lot of amazing bloggers and WordPress fans are on WordPress.com and doing this will remove them from the search results.
That’s not what I’m talking about.
I’m talking about relevancy.
I search for WordPress fill-in-the-blank needing help with whatever WordPress thing I’m working on and I’m flooded with twits babbling about things that have absolutely and completely NOTHING to do with WordPress, and the word WordPress not found anywhere on their site other than “Powered by WordPress” and in the URL. This just shows you how powerful the keyword “WordPress” has become.
So I’m asking you for relevancy. I want my WordPress searches to matter. I don’t want to dig through who broke up with whom, who got drunk last night and crashed their car, some twit arguing with another other the current state of the world when it’s clear that neither understands the state of the world, and a million lolcats.
I want to find WordPress help, resources, and techniques that make the world work better and make my life easier.
Thank you, and keep up the fantastic work otherwise.
