Kansas City Menus Making Progress!

On December 19th I announced that optimization had been completed for KansasCityMenus.com. I'm very happy to report that the optimization has pushed the site up in the search engine rankings and increased traffic to the site! Following the links in a previous post on the subject shows that KansasCityMenus.com is moving up, but let me give you some more numbers from the past 2 1/2 weeks.

First of all, you must understand that once a site has been optimized, it takes time for the entire method to update. Each Search engine has it's own way and time frame for indexing a site and calculating site rank for search terms. SO, the only thing you can do is wait and keep track, which is what LogicMaze has done. Now trust me, these are not the final numbers. There are still a few restaurant pages that have yet to be indexed, and those mixed with the growing popularity of the site will continue to raise the numbers.

I will stop rambling and get to the point with some specifics.

GOOGLE:
So we all know google is the most comprehensive search engine, and one ingredient to your results with google is time. That's something that I can't program in, so we just have to be patient and we will get there. But the numbers are good! Time will give us higher rankings.

MSN:
Google is good, but MSN has come out of nowhere as a powerful search engine with excellent results. Very quick to update and index sites. Really good numbers coming in already!

WEBCRAWLER:
I personally like webcrawler, mainly because it has been around since the early days of the web. Interesting to know, though, is that it is actually not a stand alone search engine anymore. It simply queries Google, MSN, Yahoo, Ask Jeeves, LookSmart, and About; then it returns the most popular sites combined from all those search engines. Very interesting and pleasing results.

Also interesting to note:

Did you know you can search for sites that link to another site? Just put "link:www.kansascitymenus.com" or any web address into a search engine. Try MSN for Kansas City Menus. You will find many interesting sites including the Wikipedia encyclopedia entry for Kansas City. You can see at the bottom of the page that Kansas City Menus is the destination of the KC Restaurants & Dining link.

One other tidbit before I log off- as a bonus that I didn't even expect Kansas City Menus ranks high for people looking for restaurants not just in Kansas city, but in all of Kansas. Search for Kansas Restaurant Guide in either MSN or Google and you will have Kansas City Menus as the #2 return. Both Kansas Restaurant & Kansas Restaurants return as #6 on MSN. Excellent!

You do realize this could be your business climbing the ranks and seeing results! Contact LogicMaze in Hutchinson today!

I will keep you posted on the latest numbers. Have a great day!
