Sorry folks, been on vacation

And I am guessing that by now my trial version has expired.

Any volunteers?

There is progress!!!

But I am not sure where to go from here.

My Agent web Ranking has indeed expired, so somebody else needs to pick up that ball.

I scrubbed the first 20 pages of Google for 'baan' and did not find us. Ironically my wikipedia entry (including the link to us) made it to page 2.

For 'baan forum' (Vamsi's favorit), we now rank NUMBER TWO!!! (up from 30 on 11/6).
This is a great accomplishment, only overshadowed by the fact that baanfans holds the #1 seat.

We're still #1 on 'baan community'.

We dropped a few spaces for 'baan erp' and are now on page 7.

For 'baan help' I could not find a result.

Yahoo! is still surprisingly unresponsive to our efforts. What is WRONG with those yahoos?

Despite all out bitching at Microsoft, MSN is our best friend.
#30 for 'baan' (up from 59)
#1 for 'baan community'
#23 for 'baan erp' (up from 53)
#3 for 'baan forum' (DOWN from 2, surpassed by baanfans!!)
N/A for 'baan help' (formerly 63) I am guessing I just messed up here.


But, although we made progress, we are still far from our goal. Who has a bright idea?

This is a tough one. How about creating buttons that can be placed on websites of Baan customers?

How does the link:www.baanboard.com in Google work. I show only four sites linking to us.

Vamsi, that sounds like a good idea. Any creative wizards who could see a challenge in this? I can supply baanboard logo's and other assistance if required.

Regards,

Pat.

link vs links (again)

I finally figured it out.
link:www.baanboard.com is the only correct method and yes, only 4 google-acknowledged sites link to us.

I only now noticed that links: www.baanboard.com, which I used before, is not a command, but rather searches for the terms 'links' and 'www.baanboard.com'

Badabing, badabang, badaboom. There lies our problem. It also means that we can boost our pagerank with just a few registered sites linking back to us.
Alternatively, we can link to sites that have references to baanboard but are currently not spidered themselves.

With a few PR points added, this thing is gonna fly.

Maybe a good news for the project: I've just found a link to Baanbord.com on the german wikipedia on the topic "baan". And this page is on the first page if you google for "baan".

(I've didn't insert the link, I've just found it. But for my opinion it has been a good idea)

Page Rank 3 !?

Is it true that the google page rank for http://www.baanboard.com/baanboard/index.php is 3?

sadly yes

Although we managed to boost our ranking for 'baan forum' and 'baan community', our page rank is still stuck on 3 and I for one believe that this is the main reason for the lack of progress in our 'baan' ranking.

It's a case of Google messing up, because there is no doubt that baanboard is very relevant to the term and this is not depicted in our page rank.

I recently heard that changes in page rank can still take months to occur, so I have a little hope left. There is a way to go to Google's main servers and see if there are planned changes to your pagerank, but I forgot how to do this.

I've been rather tied-up in other things lately and from what I hear, so is Google

Check the standings on Google:
Search for baan forum, lists us at #1
Search for baan, lists us at #5

Can we call this project a success?

Thumbs up Wow, the Google game...

I'm glad somebody is still paying attention.

As I changed my hemisphere since the beginning of this game I am now in the position to check our ranking on a different Google server.

Traditionally 'baan' has been a tough search on the Belgian/Dutch google because baan in dutch means job and therefore we have to compete with one million jobseekers, tempagents and headhunters.

For 'baan forum' we rank #2, right after a big employment forum. Not bad, not bad at all.
Baanfans comes in at #4. Muhahaha! In your FACE!

For just 'baan' we are not mentioned on the first 4 pages.

'baan erp' puts us in position #6. The competition is nowhere in sight.

It is amazing but after all this time we actually shifted in the right direction.

Maybe I put the bar a little high when I made the #2 position our goal for 'baan'.
As you mentioned previously, 'baan forum' is the correct search term.

In that case, the project is indeed a success and somehow we met the goal.
Can we be sure that it was through the efforts we made over a year ago? Did Google change its algorithm during that time?
For that matter, how are we doing on Page Rank? (I don't do Google bars anymore).

Let me answer that last one

Still stuck on 3

I found this URL: http://www.html-site.nl/rank-check.php

Which gives me the following result:

# Domain name Google Pagerank Alexa Rating
01 www.baanboard.com/baanboard/index.php 3 / 10 1,520,446
02 www.baanboard.com 3 / 10 1,520,446
03 www.baanfans.com 5 / 10 0
04 baan.ittoolbox.com 7 / 10 3,841

We seem to be doing good on the Alexa rating. Now if only I knew what it was. lol
