Thank You Google News

I have no idea how this site ended up on Google News.

Reminds me of the time when I closed our CLiK CLiK Vic Zenfolio Photo Site. A few days later I got a personal email from a Google employee, asking me to check my Zenfolio site out as their Search Engine Spiders could no longer get into the site. Google is huge and here they were reaching out to a compartively tiny website run on a 3rd party platform (Zenfolio) which was not owned by Google. Simply amazing for them to do that.

Since we setup Uniquely Toronto here on WordPress, Google has consistently sent their Spiders to index any new posts and the Google Search Engine has referred hundreds of thousands of visitors our sites.

I have said it before and I’ll keep saying it:

Thank You Google !!


Thank You Google News !!!


Thank You, Google! You guys ROCK!

I have said many a time that
Google is your Friend
and I will gladly
say it again

Google is your Friend“!

I was floored this morning. Checking the stats for this site, I noted that people were being sent here by Google Play Newsstand.

Google’s Search Engine has consistently picked up our posts and referred people our way. Their Andriod Search platform also refers people to this site. Now Google Play Newsstand has joined in. I am humbled and extremely appreciative. Thank You, Google.

This reminds me of something which happened in the past. After I closed our Zenfolio site, I received an email from a Google Search Engine employee. He informed me that Google’s Search Engine was finding a problem with our Zenfolio site and that they wanted to make me aware of it. 404 page not found errors were coming up. That email blew me away. It also showed me the Corporate Culture at Google focuses on and really does care about their customers. All of us using the internet are Google’s customers.

Thank You, Google !!!!!

Thank You Google! Our prior post: Dom Perignon “Cabaret” has made it to the top of Google’s Search Results

As a way of getting my mind to shift to something positive, I try to post about things which our Readers would normally not come across. I love Matt Drudge‘s site called Drudge Report. IMHO, one key to his success is that one does not know what to expect each day when visiting the Drudge Report.

The last couple of posts found here showcase two amazing “Commercials” from Europe. Both are wonderful Works of Art and are true Eye Candy.

I check Google every once in while to see how we are doing. Thank You Google. Your Search Engine Results just changed my State. I’m now sporting a huge smile.


Do a Google search on the following : Dom Perignon “Cabaret”.

Click on this line to view that Google Search.

Google has our post as being the 2nd from the top. Harpers Bazaar is huge and beat us to the top spot. Our post beat out a post on the Wall Street Journal and also on the Fashion Week Daily. It is not easy to get on the front page of Google Search results. To be one of the top three results is something to celebrate.

The other Search engines like Duck Duck Go, Yahoo and Bing may pick up our posts after about a week. Google visits us at least once per day. Thank You again Google, You just changed my day.

Now I have to prepare my Taxes – yea I put it off to the very last minute. Apparently I have utill May 02 2016

One of the great songs of the era which we have shared, is Bohemian Rhapsody. It is permanently welded into my memory banks. Queen was arguably one of the best bands, if not the best. They sounded as good live as they did on studio produced albums. Not an easy task. There was also never any lip syncing at their live performances. Continue reading

My How to Blog adventure. Theme search. Also discovered the importance of Keywords.

It wasn’t till I started this WordPress Blog that my learning curve went parabolic. I had been keeping the blog on my photo site for months. I did not give much thought to SEO or Keywords and Tags. The theme layout bothered me, but I found it frustrating when trying to customize it. When something worked I left it alone, fearing that I might break it.

Sure it all worked but I never realized how much better it could look, nor how many more people could actually find out about the photo site. That has all now changed.Since starting up this WordPress Blog and a clone on Blogger as a test, a whole new world has opened up.
