MusicBrainz contributions – Search result and stats improvements.

MusicBrainz contributions – Search result and stats improvements.

I’m pleased to see that two of my MusicBrainz contributions have been merged in time for the 2012-01-26 server update, and are now live on the site!

The first change isn’t exactly visible to the naked eye, but it should hopefully provide improvements in the Google Search result listings for MusicBrainz artist pages by providing a nicely formatted <meta description> tag to help Google (and other search engines, of course) list a more relevant “snippit” of the page in the search results.

The second change is in a little-known area of the site, the timeline statistics graph. I talk about this a bit more on my Google+ post, but it’s nice to see the feature live.
