Non Traditional Weddings Brings Search Word Success


Well, at one time our site was the number one placement in the world on Google if you typed in "sake sets." Not so anymore, but something kind of fun, if you type in "non traditional weddings" we come up, get this, 3rd out of 463,000,000 search items. We're above CBS new. Is that cool or what? I wrote the story in May of 2007 about my daughter's wedding to Alex Koll, who is an up and coming comedian. He will appear on Comedy Central this season, more to come on that.

So, here's the irony. When we first started out we had a Google ranking of 4. And despite the fact that for a small business website, meaning we don't have any outside capital, sugar daddies, we have a pretty decent Alexa rating. But now our Google ranking is a big fat goose egg. I've tried in vain to appeal to the Google Gods to review their system as it pertains to us, but I've got nothing.

So, while we're still a tiny dot on the horizon of all things big, I guess we can take solace in the fact that out of 463 million Internet searches we came up number 3. It doesn't pay the bills, but it does make my day. I hope something nice makes yours. Check out the new decorative hardware we've got online.--Ruth Mitchell
