If you missed yesterdays post go read it before you read this :)

My website really took of, when I realised that you needed to submit your website to search engines. I started with Yahoo! and then found some "submiter" sites. I started geting hits. However the hits were very few and far between, Wondering if anything could be done I read some articles on how to get more. This involved, making meta tags, adding keywords to your pages etc. None of this was very successful, then I stumbled across the most important aspect of all. In order for people to find your site you need something that they will be looking for. So I started writing stuff, I wrote the Project X.16 page, and a short look at evolution. This increased hit significantly. Then the webpromotion world went nuts as google apeared on the scene. I was amazed how easily I found pages using google and investigated into how it worked. As you probably know google ranks sites according to how many links are pointing to it. Armed with this knowlege I started to find people to exchange links with, this definately increases the hits you get! Anyway I think I was side tracked there :) if you want to read more about promoting your site of want to exchange links the best thing to do is to go to my web promotion page (which needs an update) and read it.

To answer the question "why did I make this site?", I started this site as an learning exercise and it hasn't stopped since :)

Well, this blog is now listed on and I have linked to it from my main page. All of which means that people are actually comming here! So I thought I have better do a little update.
I got this great guestbook entry today

What is your name? Mercedes
How did you find this Web Site? Searching for information on Proverbs 4
Are you glad you found it? remind me of a friend I know...always conscious of his 'rambling' which really isn't rambling at all. [:D]
Did you find what you wanted? No. Like I said I was looking for information about Prov 4, but more specifically verses 23 - 27.
will you come back? Since you asked, and I see no reason not to, YES.
Do you have any comments? I am impressed by your website and wondered what made you decided to create it?

Well Mercedes, I am glad you don't consider my rambling "rambling". Maybe rambling has something to do with greatness,,,

Anyhow, you raised the question "why did I create this site"? well...

<begin story>
Firstly I started creating a webpage because I wanted to find out how to do it. I made one about my family, with prayer requests information etc. however this soon became boring so I created my own personal website (with frames and everything!) It didn't really have much, links page to my favorite websites, the Online KJV Bible (much the same as today), and a "did you know" page. Of course basicly no one came to this page,but it was fun making it though.
<end story>

Well thats how I got started, hopefully I will finish the story tommorow, so check back then if it isn't allready here :)
