Rigging Search in Second Life with Spamatars

January 02nd, 2008 | Category: Search, Shopping

A post over at Grid Expectations points out how B&B Skins has become one of the most visited places in Second Life, at least according to the visitor counts. Here is a shot of the room below the store that she found full of avatars, what she we call them, marketing avatars, advertising avatars, spamatars, any good names for them?

When I popped in tonight I didn’t think I would see any, and I didn’t. Which brings to my mind right off, is, if they aren’t really “cheating” then why aren’t they still there?

So, I checked a couple times tonight, with the latest time I checked being 2:30 am Eastern time. They have a couple avatars in tubes as avatar models, both live profiles, and both with B&B Skins in their picks.

Need some help with Second Life’s new search? Torley has posted some quick tips on how to get yourself and your stuff listed. I hear that picks from avatars are really important and I bet eventually links from the web will help out as well.

Thus, this Tip of the Week — a continuation of “How to use the new Search” with Jeska’s great encouragement — is how to show your stuff in our new Search:
