That's the way it is!

When an unknown website is still in its infancy, it is practically impossible to get search engines to pay any attention. New websites are usually buried so deep and for so long that they wither and die before the Internet community ever has a chance to hear about them. But when Michael O. Brickell (an expert at creating and selling huge Internet sites and CEO of Media Positive Communications, Inc.) and his team created SchoolsGalore.com in April of 2006, it didn't take long before the major search engines started to take notice of its exceptional SEO implementation.

Created as a huge online portal for all types of schools and education, SchoolsGalore.com faced some heavy competition, with literally hundreds of other websites promoting schools, colleges, universities, and other learning opportunities. Still, the SchoolsGalore.com creative team was undaunted; they put on their virtual boxing gear and began to make Internet history as one of the fastest (if not the fastest) growing education sites on the Net.

The staff began by employing innovative search engine optimization strategies that quickly propelled SchoolsGalore.com to the stratosphere of major search engine rankings. They divided the various schools into four directories: Traditional, Vocational, Natural Healing, and Distance Learning / Online Schools. Then, they enlisted more than 1,100 accredited colleges and universities as partners, and flooded the Internet with vital information for prospective students.

It didn't take long before things really started to take off. Within six months, Yahoo, Alta Vista and All The Web had given SchoolsGalore.com a solid page-one search ranking for more than 100 competitive education-related keywords and phrases, such as: acupuncture schools, massage therapy schools, chiropractic schools, and acupuncture and oriental medicine schools, as well as numerous phrases related to traditional schools and distance learning.

For example, a Yahoo search for "Biomedical Engineering Schools" or "Electrician Trade Schools" will land you squarely on page one. Doing an MSN search for "Online Accounting Schools," "Agriculture Schools," "Anthropology Schools," "Online Cosmetology Schools," "Echocardiography Schools," "Banking and Finance Schools," "Online Banking Schools," and "Online Finance Schools" will also bring page-one results. These highly-competitive terms represent just a few of the 175 SchoolsGalore.com terms now found on page one of the MSN search results.

There's more news: Literally hundreds of other key words and phrases are steadily climbing up the search engines and are poised to hit page one at any time. And, they are not obscure key phrases, but highly competitive terms, such as online schools and massage schools.

While most search engines already recognize SchoolsGalore.com as a leader in the field of educational resources, Google rankings have been more difficult to achieve due to a wait-and-see process that many SEO experts refer to as "sandboxing." It can take many months or even a year or more for a new website to be noticed by Google, let alone to appear on page one of the SERP's. The good news, however, is that some early advances are beginning to show. For instance, when the terms "Traditional Colleges" or "Natural Healing Schools" are keyed in a Google search box, SchoolsGalore.com is right there on page one, and it is clear that this upward trend will continue. Even without much help from Google at this point, SchoolsGalore.com still boasts thousands of unique visitors each month with virtually zero paid advertising.

While other developing websites may find it difficult to get high search engine rankings, SchoolsGalore.com, at a mere nine months old, is already being recognized by it peers as a major player in the world of online education resources. In fact, the site is generating so much attention that advertising agencies are now soliciting SchoolsGalore.com for placement of their schools which include thousands of campuses!

Yes, this sleeping giant is making BIG moves and there's no turning back. SchoolsGalore.com will soon be the undisputed, best-ranked online portal for educational resources in the world. And, in the words of Walter Cronkite, "That's the way it is!"
