March 2010 Temecula Winery Web Site Popularity Report

The month of March was the start of Spring and the return of interest in visiting the Temecula wine country. Without doing anything, all the Temecula Wineries should have seen their Alexa ranks improve. Those that saw a loss, especially those who saw a big loss, did something wrong!!! An example of this was Masia De Yabar who were seduced by one of the ultimate faux pas in SEO — they turned their HTML home page into a FLASH page. OUCH!!! You see, FLASH does not give the search engines anything to spider — no text. Without the text, the search engines lost all their interest in the site so Masia De Yabar continued it free fall into the over the abyss of an Alexa in excess of 25,000,000.

Another noteworthy event was how La Cereza, Palumbo and the Red Barn dropped Google Rank from “4” to “3”. This is hard to do. Google Rank is a measure of web popularity. The more incoming links the higher your Google Rank.

Falkner has taken over as a shaker and mover from Miramonte (who lost Alexa Rank this month). Falkner has moved from 7th to 4th in Alexa rank as a reminent of our work optimizing their pages. Alexa is a measure of your relative web traffic compared to all other web sites. This kind of says that Falkner’s web site is now the 4th most popular of the Temecula wineries.

Other wineries who have seen positive movement over the last few months include Churon, Mount Palomar, Baily, Briar Rose, Cougar, Oak Mountain, Foote Print, Monte De Oro, Filsinger, and Long Shadow.
