February 2010 Temecula Winery Web Popularity Report

As you may remember, the most remarkable issue last month was CHANGE IN GOOGLE RANK by many wineries. This month we saw only one change, as one might expect. Temecula Hills Winery improved their Google Rank to “3”. This month, there was a changing of the guard as South Coast once again took over first place from Ponte. While this is a big event, the biggest issue for February was the remarkable improvement in Alexa Rank by Miramonte Winery to 4th from 18th in October. They almost took 3rd place from Wilson Creek this month and could take even a higher rank after March if they continue their remarkable growth.

We have added a few more grades for each winery. The first, Website Grader, analyzes each web site for search engine optimization. The better a site uses design, incoming links, keyword optimization, etc, the better the site rank. The sites in Red have VERY BAD web site design and optimization.

The second new ranking is BLOG Grade. We have yet to find many of the wineries Blogs. Please send a link to David_Gregory_Cragg@Yahoo.com to have your Blog ranked.

The third rank has to do with Inbound Links. This is the second most important issue for Google as they list web sites.

The fourth new rank is Twitter Grade. This has to do with the use of Twitter to support traffic for a web site.

We hope this new report features are of help as you analyze your Internet Marketing strategy. Please contact me if I can be of assistance at (951) 303-3969.
