Google pages? How to get to the top?


Google Pages .... How to get to the top? Does anyone have any experience or knowledge on how to get to the top of the list or at least on the first pages of listing on Google. I have been there several times and then it drops down. Does anyone know the mechanics of this? Is it how you use your keywords -- placing them at the beginning of your paragraph?

I have had some luck with my blog posting but I can't even find anything from my website. Just curious how all of this works. I would appreciate any input or insite. I know their is a lot of experience out there - and I am sure if you are reading this you have knowledge to offer. Thanks!

Featured in eElixir - Cottage Industry

Welcome to eElixir™!

Trendy Aprons from Over the Top Aprons: eElixir Featured Cottage Industry

At Over the Top Aprons, my specialty is designing/creating updated aprons for today's woman/child. I use designer fabric/ribbons for a beautiful, quality apron. The styles range from elegant, chic and classy, romantic, and a bit fun and funky. A look, a style to express your individual style!

How did you get started making your craft?
About 3 years ago I saw a T.V. program showcasing a woman who makes aprons. I thought, I can do that and maybe just a little bit more interesting!

What inspires you?
Keeping up with fashion, colors, trends, and reinterpreting it in my aprons.

Tell us about your family and their role in your business.
At this point in our lives my husband is retired and he is completely supportive and my grown children say "way to go mom!" and cheer me on.

What has surprised you most about making and selling items from your home?
I think because there is so much competition on the internet for almost anything one might be creating that you have to keep on your toes and it is a lot of hard work.

What advice would you give someone who is just starting out?
Just what was shared with me: Believe in yourself and go with your passion. People can copy your work but they can not copy your individuality that comes through in your work.

Why do you think people should support modern cottage industry?
There is a new awareness of wanting greater quality and expressing your own individuality in what you choose.

Container Vegetable Garden - Any Ideas?

Do you have any ideas for a container garden that you would like to share? Any experience, good or bad? I live in Northern California, just outside of Sacramento and I am considering a SMALL container garden, preferably up high enough so I do not have to bend. What would you suggest I should start with, what is successful? tomatoes, lettuce, onions, ? I would love your input for inspiration. Looking forward to hearing from you!

We have our chickens, 5 chickens and faithfully, 5 eggs a day. It is still a thrill when we go out to collect ... big event!! You can tell we are definitely "country folks" ....
