2. Pay the search engine companies. "Payment for Placement".
3. Be the only page with the nonsense word, "thiswilmakemefurst". You'll
be near the top if anyone ever searches for it.
4. Prayer. (But it works less than half the time.)
5. Eliminate the competition.
6. Hack into the search engine computers and modify their software so it
always lists your site first, no matter what is searched for.
7. You can also try putting this inside your web page's HEAD section:
<META NAME="SearchResultPostition" CONTENT="1">
Good luck with your site.

what you want to accomplish is pretty difficult unless there is
not a lot of competition. Please see my signature line to
