I am a SEOist, and also have a few sites that use phpBB. phpBB by default is NOT search engine optimized, so you won't see as much traffic come in from google as you could. So if you ever want some help tweaking the install, I would be happy to point you in the right direction.

Also, you might want to consider making the owner of Monito.com an offer. At one time his site was the #1 wankel site... but it is getting outdated fast. He still is in the top results but I have a feeling that this site will eventually overshadow his. His is mainly a historical perspective of the rotary, where as yours is a more practical perspective on the RX7/RX8 engines. So a merger would definitely be a boost in content. If you do end up with his site, let me know, I will also help you in the SEO transition...

wow, rick, thats a great idea. Thats the first time i've seen the site.

Hey, i would greatly appreciate help with google search, and want to thank you first off for even offering. I just hope theres something i could do to help you out as well, as for i don't see it being fair if you do all the leg work. So if theres any small things, if you got time to tell me maybe what i can improve upon? I'd greatly appreciate, keeping in mind that your time is very valuable and that i'd figure a way to help you as well.

What is a SEO?

I like the idea of monito with a merge, that would be awesome, and went ahead and emailed the webmaster, hopefully they'll respond back with an answer, it would be a super rotary website then.

thanks again, appreciate it.

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. A search engine optimist has the knowledge and experience to modify site layout and content, so as to bring pages higher in the search engine results based on search terms.

It is a bit complicated because there are SO many different things you have to do and watch out for - but it is amazing how much the slightest and unnoticeable change can make a difference. Search engine results are not random, the engines and crawlers follow rules - if you know the rules, you have an advantage over other sites, especially when there is a lot of compeition.

Let me know if you hear from the Monito webmaster.

I'm sure there is something you can for me in return, if I help you out with the SEO. I'm working up some documentation and a presentation to get some investors for a project of mine. I'm redesigning the DKM version of the wankel rotary engine. Maybe when the time is right, you could advertise on your site for me or something.

Since we're on the subject of buying up the competition, see if these webmasters are willing to sell:
