    That's not completely true. Ranking is much more complex than age, or websites would simply sink off the frontpage of search engines and never been seen again. This would not be very useful if you were searching for Microsoft and only found the 10 newest sites that mention Microsoft, and not Microsoft's homepage.

    hmmm..upon reading this thread, I checked out the position of a few of my webpages..im the #1 google hit for several search topics! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    of course, it helps that I have webpages about REALLY obscure things!
    do a google search for:

    mason bogie ui&e

    and im the top hit!
    actually, there are 5 hits total, and they are all me!
    cool..
    how about: lehigh valley railroad surviving locomotives
    yep, im #1!
    sorry..im just showing off now..
    so my answer is, "have a webpage with a really obscure topic!"
    but obviously that wont work for everyone.

    cchang,
    what is the topic of your webpage?
    what would people search for to bring up your page?
    and where does it rank right now?

    Try searching Google for

    scottychaos

    You get 987 results, probably all of which are correct!

    It does indeed help to have an obscure topic or name, cchang produced 5,620 results from all over the world.

    How do you enter your page into a search engine?
    Do all pages reindex monthly?
    You can go to this link to enter your page into Google.
    http://www.google.com/addurl.html

    I'm not sure how often they reindex.

    Your page can show up at different spots depending on what word(s) someone types in for the search.
    Such as a have a page on Red Claw Crabs. Do a search for red claw crab and I'm number 1. If you type red clawed crab I'm 2, just crab, no idea were it places. It's somewhere after page 10.

    Another exapmle is my woodworking and intasia page. Type in woodworking, I have no clue were my page is at. It's somewhere after page 10.
    Use intarsia, I'm on page 9. Use intarsia and woodworking, number 1. Use woodworking and intarsia I'm at the bottom of page 1.
    So it all depends on what keywords and content you use on your page and what someone types in for the search.
