I don't know why, but everytime I read one of these "cut the cable" stories, they always point people to Antennaweb. Doesn't anyone do a proper google search even? But, to be fair, when you Google, say,
I can't help to wonder how many other people look at antenna
web, or the FCC DTV
map, and get the same results I do and just give up?
Searches related to tv antenna pointing,
you get directed to antennaweb, antennapoint, and then there's Denny's Antenna website (Denny, you should know better!), refering people to the FCC Digital TV Transition: Reception Maps
- all 3 give bad results. They all miss LP and translators, and are completly wrong or out of date. The FCC
site shows I get ONE channel, channel 12 - and that's been dark since the transition! Antennaweb lists 7 channels as "TBD
" for live dates, even though the've been up since 1 year before the transition, and several are missing, and there are 2 channel 12's - and neither exist.
So, why isn't THIS forum at the top of the list for these google searches? tv antenna direction
tv antenna pointing
antenna zip code
how to point antenna
When I search "tv antenna pointing" TVfool is one link from the bottom of the page. No DTV usa forum, and no rabbitears.
We need to do some SEO magic for these phrases to get these people pointed in the right direction when they google these terms. We've got some good advice, links, experts, tools - but if people go to antennaweb - or, God forbid - the FCC map tool, they're just going to see nothing's available and give up.
Jay, what can we do? We need to be on the FIRST page of results for these terms.
