We welcome a new Science Fiction Short Story to our website
In which a new scientist on a new world encounters a disturbing new species.
6000 words.

Tuesday, September 25: 
Lots of new website design, which will not affect the average reader much, but will result in a more accurate representation on Google. For those of you who are interested, this meant refining our keywords, and maximizing Search Engine Optimization so that Google and other search engines find us more easily. 

Another important element to consider is the information that appears when the search engine hits us. This is what it looked like before:


Airborn Press - Cached
Home · About us · News & Events · Reviews · A Sword Called…Kitten? 
Expressive Poetry Performance · Why Are People So Stupid? Are People That Stupid?
Not too impressive, and very wasteful. This is basically a list of the "breadcrumbs" on the site: the buttons at the top of the page that help the reader navigate back to the main pages. Who needs to know that the site has "About Us" and "News and Events" pages?
So the first thing I did was reorganize the breadcrumbs so that the more important pages, like the book titles, came first. Then I wrote an introductory paragraph, using chosen key words, but making it easily understood English as well, so both search engines and human readers will get an accurate idea of what the site is about. 
At the time I write this, Google is still putting out a "cached" version of the old site, so time will tell if my changes have done any good.

!!!!!!BIG DAY!!!!!

LAUNCH FOR "Why Are People So Stupid?"

The plan at the moment is to put the book up on KDP - Kindle Direct Publishing - which, I gather sets it up for three months like a library book which members can download for free onto their Kindles. This is supposed to create all sorts of positive reaction and buzz, so that when the book comes out for sale, it will make a fortune.

I'll let you know.
