Thank you for your personal reply on Twitter today. I appreciated it. Now, lets get down to business – I can’t “tweet” the details, as there is not enough room or space.
Try it yourself.. search [fly fishing] on google.com or google.CA. If you were a dude, wanting to learn more about fly fishing, what sort of results would you want to appear?
Results about Cabela’s fly fishing rods?
Results about Orvis fly fishing equipment?
A United Kingdom fly fishing form? perhaps… Although it’s across the Atlantic.
Bass Pro Shops fly fishing gear and rods?
If I type in [fly fishing], I am interested in stuff about fly fishing. If I wanted to know about [fly fishing rods] or [fly fishing gear], that is what I would have typed in.
if I go to Google.CA, I get websites advertising their fly fishing instructional services… and I’m probably too far away to take advantage of that.
No matter where you are, if you are interested in learning more about fly fishing, and you “google” it.. are you going to learn more by going to these places:
Or this place:
Or any one ot the other amazing places like midcurrent.com? Yes, I own about-flyfishing.com – but seriously dude.. why does an Orvis or Bass Pro Shops page for fly fishing rods rank higher than midcurrent.com for that search term?
Why does a fly fishing forum in the UK rank higher than popular and frequented form in north America, on Google.COM and .CA?
Why does about-flyfishing.com suddenly not rank in .CA… but does on page 4 of .com… when it simply changed to an American hosting company?
Maybe all those Google PhD guys are thinking too much?
