    Some Changes I'm Making

    Ok with all the stuff going on with Van Halen, I am not quite happy with our search results on Google. And I think a lot of has to do with the fact that the front page of the site is rarely updated, I think it's hurting our Google rank.

    So what I've decided to do is to force the vhlinks.com domain name to go to the board. Let's face it, that's why people come to this site, for the message board. The other parts of the site are all accessible from here anyway. I am going to change a few things around so if someone actually wants to find stuff in the links directory they can click the top of the site. I'm going to change those white links at the very top that I think few people ever even use.

    So the old front page of the site is still there, it's just at http://www.vhlinks.com/links . I'm almost thinking of forcing that URL to here as well (and just changing the directory URL), but I haven't decided that yet.

    Let's see how that goes. I just think we're not getting the traffic we should be here. I mean it's good and all, but it should be better, and I think that we're not fully utilizing the strength of the board to generate traffic from Google.

    So if things go down for a minute or two it's because I'm editing pages, but it shouldn't be much an inconvenience if any.

    Ok that's it.

    PS - yes to answer the emails I'm getting, there will be a tour forum once show dates have been released.

    I think that would help. I remember seeing the links part of it in like 2003. If I'd known about the forums you would have gotten 5 more years of Fudd than you have.

    Yeah technically VHLinks can almost just mean linking fans together now honestly. I do think it hurts us on Google and when people hit the front page they don't realize to come here too.

    Yep that was my mistake years ago. But since something is going on, now is the right time to grow the place again.

    Hey guys. Opinions. At the top see how I changed the stuff at the very top, the links.

    Is it obvious the Facebook, Twitter and You Tube links are links to OUR pages, not just generic links to those sites? Or do I need to say "Follow Us!" before them so people realize it's OUR pages?
