OK, I incorporated the Google search back into it. How about the missing dates for the earlier Baan releases? Does anyone know?

Patrick,

could you have a look at new_index2.html? Actually, it looks very professional - but it's not valid xhtml.

Regards, Günther

Hi Guenther,

Thanks for pointing that out to me. I should have rechecked XHTML compliance of course after the last changes. Looks OK again now

Today's metrics

Page Rank: 3 (goal >= 6)

Google Rank 'baan': > 1600 (goal = 2)
Google Rank 'baan erp': > 200
Google Rank 'baan community': 1 !!!!
Google Rank 'baan help': > 200

Pages Spidered: about 143,000
Links: 4 ????!!!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------

COMMENTS:

So far no significant improvement in ranking.
Was I mistaken when I reported the # of links the first time? I tripple checked today's result and 4 it is. It would be 3 without Cui's recent addition.
We ARE the world's #1 Baan Community!!!

Pat, why wait with putting the new page in place? It looks great and we can always make changes to it later if required/desired.

link vs links

Ok, here's the deal on links

Today I used 'link:www.baanboard.com', which is the command Google provides.

Last time I used 'links: www.baanboard.com' (from memory).

The first one does give only 4 results.
The second one gives 3,150!!!!!

Does anybody know the difference between link and links and why the results vary so much?

Meanwhile, I checked some pages. Any ideas why e.g. Baan World Users - Netherlands, Baan Users UK and Ireland and European Baan Users Online aren't listed? They have direct links to www.baanboard.com.

I found at least one page (Baan User Club Switzerland) that points to www.baanboard.com/baanboard/index.php. Maybe that's another problem?

The google game

This thread is a great initiative. Thank you Francesco.

1) The start page is a good move. I am not sure the history of the Baan Product is written in the best way possible though.

2) If we all go to the google web site and type some search words that enable us to then press on www.baanboard.com - this will make the ranking of our site higher. Some examples that work right now are

"Baan Board"

"baan patvdv"

"baan welcome sponsor nazdaq"

If lots of people do this from different places (better do it with different search patterns), this will make the relevance of the web site higher. Don't forget to press on the BB link when you find it in google !! If many people do this, the word "Baan" alone should return BB in the first page soon, and then by pressing on BB from a "Baan" search result, it will go higher and higher...

Francesco,

Do you think it matters that the homepage is not referenced at all from any of the forum pages?

All references are to http://www.baanboard.com/baanboard/index.php and not http://www.baanboard.com/

Oh goodie-goodie-goodie!

Let the game begin!

Vamsi, Gunther, I am not sure what the consequence of low-level linking is. Maybe it is the difference between link and links that I mentioned earlier.
It is noteworthy that ittoolbox for example is only listed with its low-level domain.

Maybe we should attack the /baanboard/index page next?

But first lets see how much we game from the new page. I predict PR will go up and that will put us on the map at least.

Bamnsour, I thought Google didn't use that method (of course I can be wrong), to prevent clickbot activities and such?

Baanboard on the blog

Started a blog today just so I could link it back to baanboard. lol

Not too familiar with the blog-o-sphere yet, but if anybody here has links to exchange I will be more than happy to do so.

In the mean time, check it out: IT Happens!

I wish the vbStatistics add-in was still around. I have a feeling this thread is going to be among the most viewed and responded to in a while.

Vamsi,

That could very well be. But so far these ones are the most popular!

Baan: Triton 2 to ERP LN - DB: Bisam, Oracle - OS: AIX
Hello,

I started working on Triton 2.2b in 1994.

About Google, I would like to point an element often forgotten by webmasters to increase PR : the title tag.
So, I suggest to add Baan in the Title of Baanboard home page.

Patrick
