Yes. Seriously. Why do you ask? Have I given you reason to think otherwise? :?:

Some use of key words in posts might work.

Similar to what we did in OzStoc...........whenever possible we got asked to put our bike model in a post. In our case it was add "ST1100" or "ST1300" somewhere in the post: e.g. My ST1100 as opposed to My bike. Eventually Ozstoc came up into the top 10 for a ST1100 or ST1300 google search.

So does my post qualify with the way I mention my bike, or does it matter where in the post it is mentioned?

It doesn't matter either way works. But not every post a person makes might be suitable to use any given key word which is where "whenever possible" requirement comes in.

All ready in this topic alone the use of ST1100 has been used quite a few times and ST1300 a few times and no-one as yet has really done much to promote anything other than just talk about it.

Get people to post. 17 hours since last post. That's all day on a Sunday. That's not a lot of posts.

Took mine out of the garage today and rode up and down a couple of streets here in the neighbourhood, before scooting it back in the garage. No licence or insurance yet, but it was the first sunny day since I put the bike all back together again and had to give it the obligatory test ride. :D
