What’s more embarrasing that having a personal website and not ranking well for your own name?  Sadly Google shows this site as #117, Yahoo! at #4 and MSN at #1 for the term “Allan Collins”.  Although, it may be a little bit of a challenge to outrank all the sites for Max Allan Collins, the writer of CSI.

With 2.7 million results, I hope to climb the rankings by doing the following:

  • Adding my name and a link to my site on my forum signatures.
  • Commenting on blogs.
  • Requesting links from my fellow bloggers and webmasters.
  • And perhaps do a little bit of article marketing.

I understand that the term Allan Collins isn’t exactly a highly trafficked term at an average of 53 searches a day.  Time will only tell.
