FanConcert and Search Engines Early On

Search engines are already being quite friendly to FanConcert. I get a few hits a day from Google and MSN. I'm suspecting that Google doesn't seem to like the page links in the All Artists list though, so it's not indexing all of the artists.

It's interesting that after my blog about the concert I attended last week, FanConcert's rank in Google for Moneen got bumped up to the first page, Rufio on the second and Yellowcard, a more popular band, it's on page 3.

That's pretty amazing -- and one of my goals is to get people to want to link to FanConert when blogging about bands, concerts and albums, just like a lot of people link to IMDb when they blog about movies.

What do I have to do to make that happen? I have a few ideas but I'm hoping my users will tell what it will take.

Scott and I went to that concert too. I was wondering if you were looking at making a feature where people could link blog postings to concerts they had been to. This would be nice, so people could read about how good a concert was. Some bands are really good, but suck in concert, and aren't worth seeing. Other bands, can only really be appreciated in concert. It would probably add a bit of community involvement if people could link their blogs about a concert, to a concert.

I might get into this territory, I haven't decided.
