Bob used to be my expert on all things audio. I guess he still is. Now, his more eminent expertise is in home theater. There’s a subject I know zip about.
It’s amazing to look at all he’s written at http://greathometheater.com/. Lots of things I’ve wondered about are explained… well, except for that how to pay thing.
Bob and I were talking this afternoon, and somehow the topic moved over to search engines like Google and Yahoo!. Bob said his site isn’t in Google’s index. I just looked – he’s right!
As he explains it, there is a sandbox period when you exist, Google knows you exist, but they won’t add you to their database. Ouch! A huge portion of my daily traffic is driven by web surfers who’ve hit Google or Yahoo! or MSN. Without their help, how would anyone know I’m here?
How does anyone know Bob’s there?
The search engines scour this site all the time. Google’s here as often as the #7 train rolls through Willets Point. I give up hundreds of megabytes in bandwidth a month to keep them happy. It’s a worthwhile trade.
You can see I’ve added links to Bob’s sites in this entry and included the blog’s address in the text. I don’t know if it will help… it can’t hurt. Bob’s sites deserve to be seen.
