Subject: Move hasn't caused any problems :)
As reported here, I've moved my hosting to a new company after a couple of iframe virus attacks, and very poor support from them. I took the opportunity to move from Windoze hosting to Linux, and as part of this made the decision to change the .asp extension to .htm. I was worried that this might cause Google to completely forget who I am and drop me from the good pages in search results.

Well, it's been a couple of weeks since I made the switch, and I'm happy to report that Google page position hasn't been affected, and neither has Adsense earnings. Why this might be the case is only supposition. But whatever the reasons I'm happy I've made the move. I like the much faster load times (don't know if this host/linux/both), and I'm hoping it is more secure than the last lot!

Thanks for that link. I hadn't tried that service before, but will use it again as I liked what it had to say.

We'll see. I'm personally unsure.

If everyone agrees with you then it's definitely suspect.

We can't all be good surely.

Oh bugger - I'm only at 88 sad smiley Top 2.03% of sites, but that's according to Alexa, who I don't rate as a rating.

Looking through the report, they put the reading level at high school. Although the site is aimed at adults, I guess if it's simple that is POSSIBLY a good thing?????

I think the report is useful in some respects. It points out that I don't have an RSS feed, and that is something I am working on.
