Beloved of Google

My pal Johan Carlström (keeper of Scandinavia's foremost on-line archaeology forum) pointed something amusing out to me. If you Google the Swedish and Norwegian word for archaeology, arkeologi, you get about 2.3 million hits. Here are the first ten.
  1. The journal Populär Arkeologi
  2. The Department of Archaeology at the University of Gothenburg
  3. The E4 highway rescue excavations
  4. The Department of Archaeology at the University of Uppsala
  5. Finland's State Board of Antiquities
  6. The Department of Archaeology at the University of Stockholm
  7. Me
  8. Åland's County Board of Antiquities
  9. The NordArk archaeology portal
  10. Wikipedia's entry on the word arkeologi
Dear Reader, would you like to know how to get your web site onto the Google top ten? Apart from the obvious requirement of offering information that someone might want to link to? It's easy.

Put it on-line in 1998.

It feels pretty good! Now all I need to figure out is how to make money off of my movie star status.

"movie star status"? Hmmm, you'll need a fan club before you can achieve that level I think. Perhaps we should start making "I heart Martin" t-shirts with a sexy shot of you on the front and sell those? That could earn you a Krona or two.

Once I get a steady average of a hundred returning readers daily, I'll get some coffee mugs and tees done. At the moment, it's pushing fifty.

Should I place my order now and avoid the rush?
