A secret most webmasters won't tell you - We received over 20 million hits in August 2007, but hits should mean nothing to advertisers. Every file (i.e. images) on a page reflect a hit, so a large page can contain hundreds of hits per visitor. Some images are transparent and used for spacing.

One of the cottage industries that has come from the internet, is web placement. Like attracting the attention of passing motorists on a fast highway, ranking high in search engine's is a multi-million dollar internet advertising industry. Those who are looking for you, know where to find you. But how about the thousands who don't know about you, or what you do? If they don't know about you, then sticking your site in front of them is the only way to attract their attention on the internet. This is where ranking high in a search engine placement becomes so valuable, to you and your competitor. Most search engine experts will tell you that ranking in the top 3 of page 1 is vitally important, and ranking on page 1 is absolutely necesary, unless the front page is filled with subscription based sites. Researchers like to find it free, and will hunt for free information. For those trying to reach buyers of stainless steel, a popular search string is "stainless steel prices". Searching for this, you will find this site comes up #1 of 4,770,000 sites in Google, #2 in MSN Search, and #1 in Yahoo. Search stainless steel news, stainless steel pricing, price of nickel, nickel inventory, nickel closing price, nickel official price, stainless market, nickel pricing, stainless steel market chart, etc. and you will find this site ranks at, or near the top. Rankings change everyday, so see where we rank today. And if you know a phrase a potential customer of yours might type in, give it a try and see where we rank.
