Applying some of the techniques I have learned from the articles and sites shared here, I am pleased to see some results showing in what to me is a very quick timeframe on my oldest site - www.pcfixes.com.  PCFixes is a site with lots of helpful links and information to "Help You Get More From Your Computer" as the motto says there.  I started it over 20 years ago and basically have 99% ignored it the last 8 or 10 years. As I mention on the site, I am now going through a major rework to bring the site into a modern format and while I do, starting to update the site, removing the dead links, adding and updating as we can. It will be a good sized undertaking.  

   However the important news is this. The use of added links and mentions in a set of blogs, and having a better start on keywords and meta data during the last several weeks has already shown an improvement in both visits to the site and the ALEXA ratings.  I am particularly surprised by ALEXA - where PCFixes.com was at 21,162,532 when we started the process in late June this year, it has been dropping and is now 19,856,236 on the evening of 7/15/2014. 

      "This is approximately 1.3 million higher in the Alexa list in less than three weeks. "

This is still of course saying that nearly 20 million sites are more popular - but that we are seeing this much improvement in a reasonably short time is still good and proves the techniques we are testing - much of which we see in messages from folks we have listed here in the links. Again not a get rich quick scheme but showing that with a bit of work in the right areas, we can start driving traffic (and usually improving profit) to our desired site. 

   We will have more as we get further into this - one of our examples we are working on currently. Hopefully we will have more good progress to show in a few more weeks.


9-3-14 - The last few weeks we were not able to work on the site much due to an unexpected death in the family.  Work had started on a ebook guide to help supply users with a simple all in one source for the main content of the site - a project to work in tandem with the updates and to be synchronized with the site content so you can download it every so often, once it becomes available.  Also we are researching ways to update other parts of the site without unnecessary loss of the search engine standings and history. 
7-7-14  -The Amazon store has been added to the new system, and the signup page for the free email list. The first of a basic blog setup for comments and news has been started and has its first article - about Bundleware being included on so many downloads today and how to watch for it.
