nextI have written extensively over the years about the process of falling asleep and have sorted my journal into four areas of interest.

Searching For Sleep

We record unique sounds to assist people with relaxing, meditation and sleep. But running an Internet based business requires knowledge in many different areas including search engine optimization. Although we have a good word of mouth business the bulk of our patrons discover us through online searches. This could all change with one tiny wafer-thin mention from Oprah but, for now, it is what it is.

I must admit that dealing with the mechanics of search engines has been like pulling teeth for me. I do not like spending the time deducing search engine algorithms as it takes away from the real work we do here... making virtually real audio scenarios. As I type this Sleep Thought I am also thinking about page ranking in search results. In fact, the underlying idea of search rankings alters slightly what I type on this page and indeed on all the web pages. I know we need to get the words sleep and sounds in whatever we publish online as they are important to's ranking.  Words like relaxing and nature help also. In fact it's much better if you put words like nature, relaxing, sleep and sounds... in bold type. Okay, now I am just being cynical.

So, if you think that most web page designers are botching up the King's English you can blame the ergo-dynamics of Google, Bing, Yahoo, and the rest. 

There is something that people who enjoy our concept of virtually real relaxing sound environments can do to help our little nature sound company. If one simply adds our homepage to your browser favorites it can significantly improve our page's rank. One of these days I will less concerned (I hope) with where our pages rank in search results but for now I am not too proud to ask for help.

Lets see... did I get in the keywords sleep, sounds, relaxing, and nature enough times and in the correct density?  I'm thinking yes. But what if I'm wrong?
