:shrug: who is Google [bot] (etc) when you view whom is online at this forum??
Seems that they visit here a lot, especially when I'm online ;)

Exactly (thanks, Pete!). Bots are automated programs that scan sites to build search engine databases (and for other things such as e-mail addresses, but I don't allow anything except the major search engine bots).

Our little site has gone from invisible to #9 in the world on Google when you search for "ford escape forum", all in only 16 weeks.

And now that I know how to "work" Google and other search engines, we'll be at #1 before I'm through.

:D

Can you tell me how you "work" a search engine, I really am curious about that.

Has JPark been visiting the Google HQ recently armed with a baseball bat, or a carrier bag stuffed full of used dollar bills ???? :shrug: ;)

There are many different theories of what each search engine looks for (which is why they all show different results in different rankings), but that's pretty much what it's all about.

The great thing about this site is that I can constantly tinker with anything on the site that the engines look for and look at the results a few weeks later. Then I can tinker again.

:D
