(My homilies will no longer be found on this site.) A few months ago I opened a free WordPress site to archive my homilies. It was an easy way of putting all my homilies in one place so that they would be easy to find and categorize. I started categorizing them according to the liturgical year: Ordinary Time, Advent, Lent, Easter, Christmas etc. etc.. The categorization is still a little rough and not quite completed, but I’m working on it when I have time.
I began posting my homilies to both sites Fr. Bob’s Corner and Fr. Bob’s Homilies, but soon discovered that Google frowned on this type of thing. When Google crawls through the web it soon discovers that identical content is being posted to two separate sites or URL’s. When it finds such a thing, it does not want to index it for Google search. (Some were doing this to get more search returns, and one would find a proliferation of their identical posts when you did a Google search.)
I have removed all homilies from Fr. Bob’s Corner frbobscorner. com, so that they will be indexed at Fr. Bob’s Homilies, and people can find them. To read my homilies, just go to the tab at the top of this page named, homilies, and it will take you to them. You can also link to http://frmac.wordpress.com, as well, and bookmark for easy access next time you want to visit.
Technology is changing and developing so fast that it is hard to keep up with it. Google has done the right thing, but I didn’t know about it, or realize that some were scamming their indexing system. I inadvertently discovered what was going on out on the world wide web while searching Google for something else. Glad I found out. Live and Learn!
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause any of you. Thanks for your patience, as I stumble through the practice of learning to blog.
