I'm told by those people whose business it is to know such things that companies put a lot of effort and money into having their names at the top of the list when anybody puts the relevant search into Google.
However, I have also been told that with a little canny use of the Internet yourself, a writer can achieve the same results without having the big budget to back them up.
So, you can see why I'm understandably very happy that when you type 'Match Wits with the Kids' into Google UK, that the first ten items on the search results page are all to do with my book! This is thanks in part to an Amazon listing, my publisher Icon Books arranging for me to be filmed by the people at Meet the Author, and my own blogging efforts.
It just goes to show, that a little effort in the right place at the right time can work wonders! A lesson for us all, I feel.
