    Yes, thanks Holly, great isn't it!

    Now what we want is for it to come up at the top
    when somebody googles 'Alan Price' - then we are
    getting places and can see about links for CD sales
    etc. etc. etc.

    Jean -- does it only count if we search thru Google, or does every hit register?

    "does it only count if we search thru Google, or does every hit register?"

    I have enquired Holly and seems it only counts when alanpricefansforum is typed in the Google Bar
    and then you click 'Google Search' so that Google has to search for it!

    So I am Googling as often as I can!

    Well, I'd love to say yes, that I took it one day when Alan and I were strolling around London hand-in-hand...but no, it's a captured image from the film Alfie, Darling.

    Posted: 09 Oct 2006 07:30 pm Post subject: TOP OF THE LIST ON LYCOS AND HOT BOT ...


    Yes, when I typed in 'alan price forum'
    we are page one and top of the list on Lycos!
    Also first on Hot Bot and the Official Site is
    only number 3

    Alta Vista we are number 3 on first page
    and on Dogpile we are number 34 which is on
    page 3.

    Still waiting for Google - but we are getting there!!!!

    Can we expect some new members soon? I do hope so.

    That's just great Jean

    All I can say in the words of a song that some of us might know:
    'It's a long time coming but when it does...........'

    Great News about climbing the 'GoogleBars' but I see the placings differ from day to day.
    Perhaps it depends on the number of times the site is used?

    - and I noticed the banner wording has been changed. :p

  17. Jean

    Jean Webmaster Staff Member

    That could be the reason Bassett - it has been a bit slow on here lately. :D

    We need more postings now Members!!!

    And we changed the Banner wording so that the 'Google Bar' description gives
    clearer details of what we have on the forum then perhaps that will encourage
    people to become members :D

  18. Bassett

    Right, will do my best to be a more frequent visitor!
