*** The search engine secret that is no secret at all really ***
It's common knowledge - we all know that it is important to rank
well in search engines. Doing so can bring qualified and interested
visitors to the web site you create. And, those visitors come
to you believing that you know what you are talking about, since
you showed up in the search engine results.
All the time, people ask "How do I get my site to show up
first when I type 'whatever' into the search engines?".
++ Here's the secret ++
Create a great web site with useful information, and
have more relevant links pointing back to your web site
than your competitors.
You shouldn't be. The secret is not really a secret at all.
We all want short cuts and quick fixes. It would be nice
if you could believe the ads, submit to 18 bazillion search
engines for free, and get to the top of the search engines.
But, alas, it doesn't work that way.
It takes hard work and long term commitment.
++ So, what can you do today? ++
1. Write a new, fresh article on the topic of your
You don't have to be Stephen King to create an article
for the web. Anyone can do it. Just sit down and think
about what you know that other people might like to
hear. Not an advertisement for yourself, but real useful
informaiton others can use. Then, write it out - just like
you are talking to someone. Then, edit, proofread, and
edit again. Finally, post your new article on your web site.
2. Share your article with others to get links back to
People all over the internet want useful information
to post on their web sites. You can give it to them and,
in return, ask for a link back to your site. Check out
these sites. You can submit your article for free, other
people can pick it up, they can post it on their site, and
then they wll link back to you!
Repeat steps 1 and 2 above, and you will build content
and links. And that will help your search engine rankings. And
that's no secret.

*** News Wrap Up ***
Monica and I like to go Swing dancing (it's the style
from the 1920s - 1930s). We're taking a class and
learning how to do the Balboa. It's quite different
from most of the Swing steps we know in that it
calls for short, fast footwork.
Both of our shoes have gotten a bit dirty from stepping
on one another's feet, but we are getting better - and
having fun in the process!
