Just a note. If you do a Google search for Rolemaster Forums you will find this site on the first page. The SEO mods, the webring, submitting a sitemap to Google have paid off. We're now listed two places above the RM rulings (a couple days ago it was two places below). And slowly we are climbing up the page.

Looks like we have managed to get back on the first page of Google results! Google recently changed it's search algorythym and we have not been on the first page for a while. The WebRing is also doing us a good turn because the site description is listed in the top 20 on the first page of a Google search.

We also seem to be getting quite a few visitors. I can't tell yet though if that's mainly spammers trying to register or real people looking around.

Today, (2.4.11) I also submitted the site to Yahoo and Bing. With all three search engines I have verfication files on our server so Google, Bing and Yahoo know this site is legit and open to be searched by their bots and crawlers.

Note too that Google's recent change in their search algorythm is to our benefit. They are weighting original content more heavily. Excluding the links to this page via the webring we are about halfway down the page if you search for 'rolemaster forums.'

I discovered today that AOL uses Google for it's search! A quick search of 'Rolemaster Forums' on AOL reveals us to be the third listing!

Well, we are now at number 2 in a search for "Rolemaster Forums" on Bing. Right behind Iron Crown itself. That places us at number 2 on Yahoo as well as Yahoo uses Bing's search engine. We are still out aways when it comes to a search just for Rolemaster. And there have been a few setbacks which I expected when I removed the "Topic, View Forum and Index" terms from the page names. On Google itself we are holding at number 6, right behind my post at phpBBhacks.com.

In the grand scheme of things I can't really ask for better SEO (well, I probably could) as I admin this place solely by myself. So I'm happy. We're out there and if someone searches they will find us.
