I was on the road and decided to check on Visit Reno- the best Reno site on the internet. I have an android platform phone with a voice command for searching the internet. I asked for "Visit Reno" and the real site came up number 2 in my search. Visit Renotahoe came up first (did I ask for Tahoe?) and then came up in 2nd place was Visit Reno. I checked a couple of other network site engines on my computer, and every time the Renotahoe site was the first. My Google search showed Visitreno #5. I don't get it, as exactly what I asked for did not come up first.

I suppose you have to pay to get up the chain of searches?

Thanks for checking up on this, Swede. I don't think the acutal name of the site carries much importance to the search engines. Rankings are based on many factors, each of which is assigned various degrees of importance. Some of these factors are the actual content that visitors read, things called "head tags" that are primarily for the search engines, the actual page names, the page titles and keywords that relate to the page. The search engines secretly change the value of each topic in order to minimize "search engine spamming".

I used to put a lot of time into getting good ranking on the search engines, but don't worry about it any more. If I had products to sell, it would be a different story. On the other hand, Visitrenotahoe.com (Reno Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority) is very driven and has the resources to keep them high in the rankings.

Yeh, those guys have billboards in the Bay area, and the whole bit. I've even looked at 'em once or twice, just to see what they're doing over in enemy territory.

They may have funding, high placement, and all of that, but you know what they don't have? The love. Can't get that anywhere but here!
