As of today, when you enter ‘My Kindred Tree’ in a Google search, it comes up FIRST! (see copy of web page at bottom of post)
If for some reason you can only remember ‘Kindred Tree’ it will appear 5th in the search engine. You’ll have to do a bit more hunting if all you remember is ‘My Kindred’ because it appears on the fourth page.
The website URL or address is not the only top dog from the site. Max Augustus LINN and Eula Mae HOLDER LINN also come up first; you’ll just have to remember their entire names! Max’s picture also appears first in the ‘Images’ search.
To put this in perspective, it is estimated that there are about 250 million websites with about 75 million of those that are active. Google, Yahoo, and Bing share about 90% of all searches with Google getting about 65%, Yahoo 17% and Bing at around 12%.
This is more fun than playing ‘Scrabble’ on line. Actually it’s called SEO, short for ‘Search Engine Optimization’. There are several goals for trying to be on the first page of a search engine such as Google:
- To make it easier for family and friends to find content.
- To assist others that might be searching for these kindred ancestors and family trees.
- To put more ‘good’ content on the internet.
