    We get most of our new members from Google searches. We work REALLY hard behind the scenes to get BYC up on top for the most frequent search terms.

    The problem is that Google presents different results for different people all over the world.

    So, we need your help. Can you search the following terms and let us know what position we are at in Google's search results page?


    chickens
    http://www.google.com/search?as_q=chickens

    chicken coops
    http://www.google.com/search?as_q=chicken+coops

    chicken breeds
    http://www.google.com/search?as_q=chicken+breeds

    raising chickens
    http://www.google.com/search?as_q=raising+chickens


    For me I get:

    chickens #1
    chicken coops #1
    chicken breeds #1
    raising chickens #1
