Google gets the most traffic. This article corroborates my theory of a few days ago.
Given that information, it’s natural to want to get a good listing and I’m here to help. I pulled the above link from a very helpful article on evolt.org. I would also highly recommend reading the webmasterworld post which the article links to. It has a step-by-step process which will make Google fall in love with your site.
With all the news about Google getting bigger and better, it’s no surprise that the old king of the web is getting a new look. I don’t think it’s going to help.
I thought it was really cool when I saw mine on google for the first time! *baby i’m a star* :P
I was stunned when I realized that the friendly Googlebot was spidering my site daily and keeping it cached. I searched for my name and it showed that day’s date.
Isn’t that so freaking cool!! There is this one time that I hated how I was found by this one person and I hope that he doesn’t come back.Very scary,indeed!
Yes, I noticed quite a time ago that Google are bringing 60-70% of my visitors.
I can’t get Google to find me :( though it’s not like I have much to browse.
Interesting tidbit on why mine hasn’t been indexed.
“If we have not picked up your site and it has been several months, then it is likely that our spiders are not able to find your site. The ONLY way a site is included in our index is if our crawlers are able to find it by jumping from link to link on the Web. If we have not found your pages, it is because we have not encountered any links on the web pointing to your site. This is not to say that no sites on the Web contain links pointing to your site – it simply means that no sites found by Google contain links pointing to your page. If you increase the links pointing to the page, Google will likely find your site in the future.”
Poor Cameron. I’ve got the beginnings of a webpage that come up near the beginning of a google search on my full name, but I’d rather they not be there since I can’t access that server anymore and the site is embarrasingly unfinished. Oh well…
