I didn't really get it right so corrections follow....
We could try google/link bombing.
Select some specific words and phrases, then make each of these into a link to favoured websites. The key is to have as many blogs etc do this as possible so that when someone searches on one of these words/phrases, our links are at the top of the search. I think it helps to press the links a lot too.
So for eg, every time you write the phrase "home education", make it link to the ahed home page like so:
You need a concerted effort of a number of bloggers etc for this to have a real impact on the search engines.
Other possible examples:
when you type 'badman' be sure to link to http://grahambadman
when you type 'ed balls' be sure to link to
when you type 'home education review' be sure to link to
when you type 'badman report' be sure to link to http://sometimesits
There are many more examples you can use. The important thing is that people work collectively to do this. You need people using the same links to specific phrases or it wont work.
sort of but not really :D
Okay so possible changes to your post -
The phrase "DCSF Select Committee" should link to a page critical of what they are up to. Once you choose a good post for that, you need as many bloggers as possible to ALWAYS link that phrase to that same post. This way, it gets bumped up the search engine listings until every time someone searches on that phrase, your chosen link will be the top suggestion on google etc. I would recommend choosing a second such article/blogpost to link to for when people use just "DCSF". Remember similar search terms.
The phrases "Graham Badman" and "Badman" should ALWAYS be linked to http://grahambadman
The phrase "Review of Elective Home Education" should have it's own designated link. So should "Elective Home Education", and so should "Home Education".
"Ed Balls" should ALWAYS link to http://www.renegade
If you can think of other suggestions, make a list. Then that list should be circulated to all relevant bloggers. Each of you (Im not blogging atm Im afraid) should put up a single blog post with this list, simply like this:
DCSF Select Committee
Review of Elective Home Education
Elective Home Education
etc etc, each item on the list linking to their designated blogpost/webpage. Include at the end of this list a request for supporters to repost the list on their own blogs, complete with the SAME links. Take the time to click on the links and ask your friends to do that too. Before you know it the search engines will have caught on that your links are the most popular for those phrases.
Also - in future blog posts, when you use any of those phrases, use the same links from the list. Its important to be consistent in that.
What do people think, is it worth the effort involved in synchronizing our methods?
