> Hi Carolyn,

> I couldn't agree more.
> I've placed three sites on the first page of the SERPs in

> registration.
> But that was a couple of years ago when the market here was

> Google had just opened up shop here, Google was immediately

> them delist the whole country!
> (Since then, the degenerative copyright laws have been
> amended over 250 times.)
>
> I kept one of the sites pulling top listings using web
> community tactics and changing product lines.
> The two others were the victims of aussie cleverness. The
> owners thought they'd learned all they needed to know from
> me, and decided to go it on their own.
> Their sites soon disappeared deep into the SERPs. It was
> disheartening to watch, I'll tell you.
>
> SEO down under is more a great foul wind for most ecommerce
> site owners.
> Web design classes focus on design without even mentioning
> the basics of document structure; much less keyword
> optimization.
> Although that may sound like a great opportunity, it has
> not materialized.
> The previous administration was Internet-phobic, and spent
> millions to prevent small businesses developing online
> busineses.
> Most Australians are reluctant to purchase from the Web,
> especially from other Australians! IOW, aussies trust
> companies thousands of miles away more easily than
> Australian businesses.
> The Internet infrastructure is partially to blame.
> The previous administration did a great deal to prevent
> aussies from getting access to the Web. The processes set
> in place are still preventing infrastructure development.
>
> Don't believe the published statistics.
> The reality is 60% of those who supposedly have access to
> broadband (ADSL) ..don't.
> The connections are on poor wiring and service in 2/3rds of
> the supposed service areas just aren't available; or when
> connected provide connections so poor the home or business
> may as well be on dialup.
>
> It's astonishing to see a relatively modern country

> purposeful mismanagement of such a - for Australia
