Moving Up the List/Another Contest

by Keith Fisher

I perused the Google images to find inspiration for this blog and noticed something. I found I was listed on the third page back, but it was my website, not this blog. The website is pretty much static, so, it should be farther back. Don’t get me wrong I’m glad to be there, but since I post on this blog twice a week, it should be listed closer to the front. It took a while, but I finally found the blog after searching several more pages.

Could you help me out? I need an ego boost. Tell your friends about this blog and encourage them to come and leave comments. If we get enough hits, this page will move closer to the front, and I will be very happy. In fact if you get someone new to visit, tell them to drop your name and I’ll put you in a drawing for a special prize.

To help out in this situation, I think it’s time to give something away. This time, in order to win, you must leave a comment here, and leave your answers in an email (unless you want to give the answers away) bloggame57 at yahoo dot com.

At this point in the game, an announcer named John comes on and tells us what prize we can win. Since we don’t have an announcer, or the money to pay one. Shoot, we aren’t even on television. I guess I’ll have to show you.



This is a never been viewed, VHS copy of Cookin’ Outdoors with Johnny Nix. He is the host of a cable program called Campfire CafĂ© and he talks the viewers through their first time experience with outdoor cooking. It’s even entertaining for old time camp cooks.

Here’s what you have to do to win. Email your answers to five questions.

  1. What year did I win the World Championship Dutch Oven Cook Off with my partner?
  2. What do I love to do first thing in the morning on campouts?
  3. Name 3 Dutch oven manufactures.
  4. What is the name of my Dutch oven website (not my blog)?
  5. What does the picture show on top of the picture scrapbook?

All of these answers can be found on this blog, or my Dutch oven website. in the event of a tie, we will draw names from a pot.

There you have it. Feed my ego, and I’ll put your name in the drawing. Answer the questions and win a free video. Until then, the best way to beat the cold is to light a fire and cook over it.

Another way of getting bumped up the list is to have people link to you site. I'll add it to my few pages to see if that helps.

Honestly, I watched Johnny Nix just to hear his accent! Campfire Cafe declined quickly after he left.

I've seen my fair share of Cowboy Flavor, too.

To me, Cee Dub is still a good basic show.

Keith,
How to move up in search engine rankings does seem to be a mystery. Hope you're able to solve it ... when you do, give us all a few hints!

Oh, I'll email my answers to the contest.

What do I love to do first thing in the morning on campouts?
Having trouble with this one. First assumption is cook breakfast? I searched the blog site for campouts and morning. Not a lot of help with those two words. Maybe hunting? I'm still looking for this one.

Name 3 Dutch oven manufactures.

What is the name of my Dutch oven website (not my blog)?

What does the picture show on top of the picture scrapbook?
