I'm #1 !

I published an article on AC yesterday about the latest scam. I thought it was timely and hoped to get a decent rating on google since the company didn't show up on any search engine as of the time I published the article. I googled the partial company name this morning and it shows up #10, but still on page 1 and is the only listing that is recognizable as being about this particular company. When I google the full company name or any portion of the name along with the word 'scam', I'm #1 - yippie! Not only that, but the #2 entry is from treehugger.com with a link to my full article. I have no idea how many people will be searching this particular term, but if they do, I'll get the page hits. I'm so glad I had the foresight to check this out and write about it immediately. You can read the article by going to my profile and clicking on the link labeled 'Good Scoop'. I'm still new at this and struggling to increase my readership. Have you written things that have gone to the top? How often does that happen? Do you have a system in place to help get you there?

Thanks, Derek. Grrrr, stinkin' myLot. I hit 'post' on this discussion and it said my title was invalid, so I went back and fixed it and hit 'post' again. myLot was hung up and dunno what happened, but both discussions showed up, identical except for a minor change in the title. Sorry myLot(ters) - wasn't intentional!

Yeh, myLot was hanging a lot this morning when I posted to this discussion. It seems OK now. Just a glitch in the system I guess. - Derek

That is so cool..it has to be fun to hit on something like that..to write about something no one has written about yet. I will check it out on your profile..thanks. No I haven't written anything and have never had anything like this happen to me before.
