Short answer is: 32 days. If you’re lucky. Similar pages struggled more.
We used to have strict rules on which pages we allowed to be indexed. These have now been liberalised, but with some unexpected restrictions. One such quirk appeared on our search page for boats, where we didn’t allow indexing when the search was filtered by a boat type, but not also for brand. That meant that if you were googling “watercraft”, you would find a list of vessels from a random brand, not the list of all watercraft, as you would expect.
I’ve been working a lot with universal design in web development, also known as inclusive design. And in my spare time I’ve always loved to play around in the kitchen. One thing that has been a challenge to my cooking is that my wife is intolerant to eggs, milk and gluten, and I have twisted my mind to make food that she can eat and I find interesting.

There are increasingly more girls both enrolled and finishing studies in programming. When women in tech are being praised, the focus is usually on those who enter leading positions. Therefore this post will focus on…
We begin every new year by looking over the old one. This article will look over which devices and softwares people used on FINN.no in 2018. Nearly everyone in Norway is using either our web-site or our native apps, so our data reflects what the population is using.
So let’s start by looking at the devices people were using on FINN, regardless of whether they used our native apps or visited www.finn.no with a browser.
How do we know that our web site actually works the way we want? We use web analytics.
