You can ask Potts about Search Engine Optimization (SEO), but this is a big, established field, for which companies typically out-source or hire specifically. Jay and I have talked to Potts about SEO stuff before and he hasn't been too helpful on the subject. He's been so vague about it that I think either he wants to be the only way anyone at ArtistDirect/MD could find out about it, or he doesn't know anything about it really.... I think (Jay can correct me on this, as he explained it to me before) robots.txt tells search engines what NOT to index and not the other way around and the problem we have is that all of the pages are created dynamically.

Do you know how goggle images indexes pictures for search? It seems to me that we have a huge collection of somewhat broad pictures coming from our website even if someone does not install the app. I would like it if our pictures were indexed with goggle. We need to get as much search traffic as we can.
Is there anything we can put in the robots.txt?

I just was referring to organic growth being about the same as the RKnet porn stuff. From google analytics we can see what referrers aren't us and that looks similar to the rate we get people emailing links to the site and talking about it in forums.... It's not much, but it's a start. The conversions are about as good as the first opt-in for ringtones on a cell phone (about 1 in 300). RK converts 1 in 6500 on avg, using credit card. Adult friend finder converts 1 in 2000 on limewire. If we want more users, Dylan's eDonkey messages would get us a lot of Europeans that are a little bit older crowd....

I missed the context of this question but I'd be curious how it compqares to adultfriend finder free service which I believe does not require a cc.
