This site is only for the cool fans.


Which again begs an answer to question #2.

Kevin needs to add a by-line to the index page, even if it's hidden, that lists search terms for "west virginia fan site," etc. then... we need to visit google and run it up the flagpole (i.e. enter it through google after a search).  After selecting it from google it will move toward the top of the list/become a more popular return on the search terminology.  I always just assumed the intent was NOT to have it be Google popular, and allow it to grow in a managebale fashion.

yea, I think that coding has a factor in it as well as searches/hits.

Metadata for Search Engine Optimization isn't implemented right now because of changes I'm making.  When the remodel is done (this weekend at the latest) the metadata will be in place and we'll climb back up the Google search rankings.

Google is a fickle beast with search engine optimization.  I'm being doubly careful that what we're doing right now satisfies Google so we don't get completely blacklisted from their search results.
We will be cruel to Pitt.  And through our cruelty they will know who we are.  And they will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us.  And Pitt won't be able to help themselves but imagine the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands and our boot heels and the edge of our knives.  And Pitt will be sickened by us.  And Pitt will talk about us.  And Pitt will fear us.

Like I'm suppose to be the one who would remember the name of the place(s) we've been thrown out of :))

Here's an idea - How about we create some TMN awards to give to players and coaches?  We could develop some award categories, have the membership vote, and send the guys a TMN certificate that I am sure that someone with some skills cold create, or perhaps have a virtual awards presentation.  By award categories, I mean the basic things like MVPs but also things that are TMN related, for example Top TMN Buzz Generator, an award to go to the player, coach, or administrator who generated the most discussion, e.g., Stewart, Holgerson, Luck, Geno.  There are probably a lot of these that we could come up with.

Good idea?  Bad idea?  Yes?  Meh?

I like the idea, but not sure we would need to actually send the awards.  I like the idea of a TMN committee, made up of mods and selected members, to weigh in and vote on a few awards, then we could do an article type thing and banners based on it each year.

TMN.com Mountaineer of the Year, things like that
