..this should probably be a sticky here.

I was a bit surprised when Kirk told me he had a new website (as he doesn't really believe in the internet), but there is a lot to digest (including a glowing review of our conference :thumbsup:)

Thanks for posting the link. If the pdf will download at home (having a problem here at work) I know what I'll be doing tonight.

Kirk is a wealth of information.

The new Kirk Webster site will be another standard resource.

And now that "Kirk Webster" has been typed in a posting, the search function will find this thread...

I guess I need to keep repeating myself about searches. By far, the most extensive search will be had using the google search function on the home page. I typed in "kirk website" and it was #2. There is a wealth of information available simply using the tools provided. :) This was before you made your post.

I added two tags this morning, "Webster" and "kirkwebster.com", someone else added "kirk webster".

It's nice that the thread is more visible.

Barry,

Had you typed "Webster website" you would not have seen this thread... I was more interested I a guy named Webster who had bees than some "Kirk".

The importance of tagging threads should be emphasized ...

You might be more interested in a guy named Webster, but the search function doesn't know that it is Kirk Webster you are actually interested in. Using the word "Kirk" narrows down the field, as you can see when one uses the word "Webster." 10 finds using "Kirk", hundreds when using "Webster." Now add "website" to it and again there is a difference in what comes up.

And when a thread doesn't contain a string of characters, or hasn't been tagged with those characters, we all know that Google is not going to find it.

That's why I started another thread. I had expected to find a recent thread containing "webster". There wasn't one...



:eek:t:

BTW, This is off topic from our celebrating the new website.

I thought we were adding more key words to the thread! ;)

It's long overdue, a Kirk Webster website. This is a great resource for all beekeepers! :thumbsup:

I 'stuck' it for a while. That will help get more discussion, more hits on searches.

I've been taking some time to read his 'articles' or whatever they are, more like stories, which is good because I like stories.

A little less 'how to' a little more 'what I did.' It's kind of refreshing.
