I could not find this site on Google even tho I tried many combinations of wine board, wine forum, wine discussion, et al. Could be why no novices have shown up.

If you Google "thewineboard" it comes up as the first response but who would search for it in that format? Searching for the wine board finds nothing.

I believe that Alex figured out a while ago that the action is no longer on a wine forum--even blogs are waning.

Action is in the Twittersphere and immediate-gratification, promotion-based mechanisms like it.

Pray for humanity.

Aren't there folks on the web who can get your site listed first on Google?

It's actually mainly my doing -- if you will -- that the site is hard to find just now. I haven't taken the time to do much SEO (search engine optimization).

I just added some plain text to the homepage and a description metatag, which eventually will help get us listed in Google, etc.

I'll do some more SEO in the near future. At the moment, I am rather challenged creating a BRAND NEW WINES.COM, that you'll be able to see soon. I've been working on it for awhile. Hope you'll all support me when I take this back under my control... stay tuned.

Thanks all.
Jackie
