Getting your website up into the top rankings is a large component in being able to have people find you. It works from behind the scenes and is a direct result of your work you do with submitting your site to search engines and the various back links and reciprocal links you can achieve.

How is that possible? There is a magical formula that I stumbled upon. I began to connect with authors on Facebook and SelfGrowth.com and have put links to my books on those sites. You can’t imagine what an oddity it truly is to launch a website and have it rise to the level of a major fortune 100 company’s website.

April 2008 my Create Your Own Reality book site was not even ranked, by June it was at 1.1 million. By October I got it to barely over a half-million. Then I started focusing on my newer book and it’s back down to 1.5 million. But that’s great! You need to keep up the activity on each site or your rankings will drop.

One of the methods to keep your rakings high is to submit articles to ezines that relate, exchange links with like-topic sites and of course, keep your activity up on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter activity. The relationships you create there are going to drive your recognition up even higher.
