Pictures of Cats Forum submissions are often surprisingly successful to the point, where I sometimes use the form myself to build a page. For example, on a worldwide search and using www.google.co.uk, type into Google “domestic cat hunting”. See where it is listed. I built the page in 20 minutes using the form on this page. Don’t believe me? – try it yourself. Note this please. People in America will automatically use www.google.com, which may produce different results.

With the form on this page you can easily build a small webpage that gets found by Google and listed in the first 3 pages. Take a look at this page on the Warrior Cat Book Series: Warrior Cat Series. (search for “Warrior cat series”) Here is a page written by me about a melanistic Savannah cat. Google “F4 Savannah cat”. And finally another example. This one is a page built by a Serval cat breeder, Patrice Williams, and it ranks higher in a Google search (at Oct 2008) than anything that I have produced! – Beautiful Woodland African Serval Kittens for Adoption (search for “serval kittens”)

Ideally you’ll need to make it about 500 words long. But Patrice’s submission is quite short. Although there are now plenty of comments, which make the page bigger and more interesting sometimes.

I’d Employ these tips: use the title of the article (max 3 words ideally) a bit more than usual and exactly as it is, in the text that you write. Upload a photo with a file name that describes the picture. Caption the picture with the file name (for Google image search). Write about  500 words. Submissions made in the pictures of cats forum are automatically optimized.{to top of page}

Don’t want to bother? Write it and I’ll make Google find it! Or, if you’re not too bothered about Google finding and listing the page, write what you like for as long as you like.
