A Good Beer Blog


Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.

Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... immensely readable, sometimes slightly surreal rumination on beer in general and craft beer in particular. Funny, witty, but most important: Smart. The beer geeks will likely get all cranky about it, but Alan and Max are the masters of cranky..."

Ron Pattinson said: "I'm in a rather odd situation. Because I appear in the book. A fictional version of me. It's a weird feeling."

When this shows up on Google's second page you know something's wrong:
"Beer is the lactation of undersexed and over-aged himalayan goats."

You found the hidden prize, Jonathon! It appears Google has raised the ranking of the use of a word rather than the quality of context. Spammers will be pleased.

Good call on that! I just Googled my blog and I am 26th on the "brew blog" search!

Are you actively working on SEO? I am reading a book about it and it's kind of annoying how the whole process works because there are people out there trying to manipulate the process.

The only good thing I have learned thus far is "the ideal person you want to find your site on a search is the person looking for your site." Other than that, it's throwing s&%* against the wall and seeing what sticks.

I think I know what SEO is but I leave that to my server masters. I am blessed with a remarkable former client and employer that hosts the whole thing here, silverorange.
