    I breed and raise miniature donkeys and need your help to get the web search engines to move my site up so people will find it. The more times it gets looked at from different addresses the sooner it will get moved up.
    I'd really appreciate it if you could just look at www.laststrawfarm.net
    Thanks![​IMG]

    But I doubt anyone would buy my story!

    Can you give a history of miniature donkeys? What they were used for, how they were developed, what lines yours were originally from, show scores, etc.

    What you need to do to get in the search engine is write a short intro using keywords - what would people put in a search engine to look for- that is one of the first things- also do you have 'metatags' in the code using terms that the search engines could find??

    Yeah! Kind of like a "history" of your specific type of donkey. What got you started in them.

    I was also wondering what's with the HUGE amount of space to the right of the screen? It kind of seems crammed to the left side of the screen?

    Thanks Hobbyfarmer!

    I named it The Last Straw Farm when I quit my job and began doing this. It was the last thing I said when I wrote my resignation notice.[​IMG]
