discussion group/info page about what’s happening in your slice
of the world. You become the source of information, the watercooler, theperson to turn to. Of course, if you spend ten minutes on it and then
move on, it’ll fail. But, if you spent 30% of yo
ur time working on yourpage (building it, curating it, promoting it), what do you think wouldshow up in Google searches? What sort of interactions would you start having with people thinking about your little part of the world? Evenbetter, what if you built a blog about your town, as good as any local
paper, with high school sports and tax controversies and everything…don’t you think the right people would read it?
