Thats a fun word, apparently as I search for work Im networking with my friends and community to tell them that Im looking for a job and if they hear of anything that they think I would be interested in to help me out. It goes back to the idea of its who you know, I should hope its who you know that knows what you know. LOL
On another side of that Ive been trying to get this site listed. Funny thing its like a bit of foot work if you dont want to pay to be listed. Things have changed in 5 years as to how things are listed. If you want prime search engine listings you have to pay up front to get the hits from them more than you did in the past. Targeted searches yeild the sites that have paid the most to be number one. (IE, if you search for illustration, you may come up with several sites that have paid for presentations. Ad agencies and the likes.) Where I who am too cheap to pay for a listing will probably be at the bottom of said list. However on the rare chance someone searches for ‘Ledsoul’ a relatively uncommon word, I would appear ontop as no one uses that search term.
So how do I describethis site so people get a good idea as to what its all about. I had recently double checked my Meta Tag description and was frightened by what I had wrote there. Perhaps it was the pain medication or the fact I rushed it, but now a large percentage of the free search engines I submitted to now have an old ridiculous description that is too long to call it short… So I rewrote my Meta Tag:
“Ledsoul Studio is a artist run site with dynamic illustrations and a creative blog and portfolio of RH Tom Edsall. Illustrative art work that appeals to comic book, scifi and fantasy enthusiasts.”
Still it is difficult to know what it is that will appeal to someone searching for my site. Obviously however if they typed Ledsoul into a search they would be looking for me so that doesnt mater… hahaha.
As it is Im going out and ‘networking’ with other sites and search engines to help promote my site and I. Time will tell as this information propogates to the net…
