Thankyou Frank a million times, for your extremely interesting Piano website.

I also wonder why the Piano Manufactures do not Advertise here. But would you not require a specific forum for the manufactures? Perhaps some have read the forums and see no page that they would use. I know there is a page 'Piano' that does cover the instrument but hardly suitable for advertising ? Or are you referring to right side bar advertising space? that would be useful I'd have thought.

Also they, the manufactures may consider that 'in depth' criticism by the public would turn the whole matter into a slanging match or worse. Though to be more positive,good would prevail I would think and the best would emerge at the top.

But, from the musicians angle you have got the whole idea absolutely spot on. And more power to your elbow.

Kind regards,

Swingal (Alan)

Thanks Alan and jollyroger,

I was thinking more of branding/institutional ads for manufacturers. Either as a button ad in the right column of the forums and/or in the left nav of the main PW web site.

They could also opt to have an enhanced listing in our Piano Manufacturers page, or Advertise in our Classified Ads Section

It's funny because the dealers/tuners/movers/rebuilders are getting the idea, but not the manufacturers. Yet they spend big bucks to put full page ads in magazines with limited readership (and probably end up in the trash after a few days).

You'd think they would grasp that the Internet is where the majority of people start their research these days. And that online you can use multi-media and interactivity, plus you can measure response. All things you can't do in print.

In addition to Search Engine Optimization and Search Marketing, I also work in Internet Marketing, which covers a broad range of online marketing techniques.
I'm also trained in usability, analytics, and metrics. You'd think they would want to take advantage of my skills

I think comparing a web site dedicated to all things piano and a particular brand of piano is like comparing apples to oranges. But regardless this place has to be #1 in the Pianoworld... \:D

Nice info Frank... you do indeed know what you're talking about.

Been trying different SEO vendors for a few years now and running a corporate site has forced me to learn way more than I ever wanted to... \:\)

Those are some nice stats.

In looking for a new piano I ended up here and found a wealth of info.

My local piano dealer told me to stay away from here.

Needless to say I bought my piano elsewhere.

Hi Frank, very impressive SEO work you have done.
I sent you an email a few weeks ago, I know you are flat out but still waiting. I would be interested in advertising online piano courses but your Piano Lessons section only has State locations. What would be good is if you had a category for online lessons as not everyone is able to get to a piano teacher, or not in USA, or they prefer to learn in their own home, at their own speed.

Do you have stats on keywords related to learning the piano? For example:
learn piano chords
learn to play piano chords
learn to play the piano
learn to read music for piano
piano lesson
piano lessons for adults
play piano chords

Those are just examples as I don't know what phases trigger your website in the search results, but would be very keen to know the amount of unique visitors to keyword(s) you have to your website that are looking for lessons before I commit to advertising.

Thank you very much for your time, kind regards, Ian
