After weeks of research, I’ve finally been able to put my name & company at the top of the 3 major search engines–Google, Yahoo, and Bing. All you have to do is to type in “bobcrawford-rmcomusic”, “bobcrawford-symmetriccycles”, or Jazz–Bob”Crawford ” on any of the 3 sites and then click…6 pages of either Bob Crawford, RMCO Music, or both headings (roughly 60 entries) appear…this can drive a lot of traffic to my website which hopefully will result in some sales for my book “Symmetric Cycles” and my 2 Crossover Jazz albums BOB CRAWFORD/RMCO MUSIC presents: CONTEMPORARY JAZZ CROSSOVER INSTRUMENTALS Vol. 1 & 2. Please try it out and let me know what you find.
