Don't know if you know this, but I do web sites for a living. One of the aspects of my job is I do Search Engine Optimization commonly known in the programming community (foghorn) as SEO. Well of course I optimized this site to try to place it well. I optimized for several key phrases I thought would be appropriate.

Well as of this morning, and I sure hope this sticks, when typing minnesota fishing in Google, I am popping up at #7. When typing Minnsota fishing forum, I am popping up #1. Also popping up at #1 in Yahoo. There are other various key phrases I am popping up on either the first or second page.

Well, this is GREAT! To get top rankings like this usually takes a year or two to get. It's also a lot of work. I'm not going to go into details, but trust me, there is so much competition out there that getting any type of ranking is a long time coming.

I have been ranking very high in Yahoo and MSN for various phrases too, but these search engines are a little easier to get ranking then Google. Google is the granddaddy of the search engines and the trickle down effect to the other search engines is very noticeable.

Anyway, thought you might want to know. Not tooting my own horn, but am hoping to get some more users out of this. If this was a commercial site, I would be laughing all the way to the bank. BUT, it is here just for the fun of it.

Thanks Everyone! And keep posting!!! Believe it or not, a lot of your posts are now getting into google too. Unfortunately, a lot of them are from the pre-database-crash in which I think I lost about 10,000 posts - oh well. I diverted all those to the archive page.

Once again -- THANKS!

Congratulations. My primary website took a while to get up on the first page of all the search engines, too, but it's finally there for the search terms I wanted. The site is http://www.osomin.com. Try the search terms "mineral specimens" or "thumbnail specimens"

It was a combination of careful use of metatags, page text, plus a very active link exchange list with others in the same business.

A difficult job, and you've done very well with a non-commercial site!

Hey hard ice,

you had mentioned that you wanted to change your handle. Did you still want to do that? If so, please tell me and I will get you set up. After the new handle is in place, you will need to lof off then log in again for it to work.
