So yesterday I was Googling and Yahooing and, well, you get the picture. I was trying to see how my sites were doing since I haven't done a Google Update here in a while. Anyway, I came across a little bit of personal history while doing so. When I searched for "Andrew Baxter" on Altavista, it returned a page I had created way back in 1997 for the Acadia School of Business! I worked that summer for the Acadia Institute of Teaching and Technology helping the School of Business gear up for the newly-created Acadia Advantage program. It took me forever to make that chopping Axeman. It's hard to believe that this very early work of mine is still floating around the internet. I guess Acadia has yet to pull the plug on this old server. I certainly hope the page is no longer in use!

Anyway, by way of a Google update, my blog is still on page 1! My personal website now shows up on page 2 when searching at, but quite far down when searching at (odd). I'm up there on Yahoo again (at least on this computer), and on Altavista Canada and Alltheweb (a new one I found). I managed to get my blog listed on the Open Directory Project, which seems to have been a real help to its Google ranking.

My current project is to get my new company website moving on up the rankings. I hope I have as much success with it as I did with my personal page!

As if there's any doubt, especially since you've taken the time to research what works and what doesn't...

that Axeman can just keep chopping away forever as far as I am concerned!
