Yes, I'm sure SOI (Science of Identity) has done this as well.
I bet they would like to try. Don't forget I lived with the tech guy there :wink:
One day he gave me a tutorial in how to get things ranking on Google while he was trying to satisfy his boss by getting Firm-n-Fold to no.1 so thanks Bren
Ex-SOI are doing pretty well google wise.
For 'Siddhaswarupananda' the thread Krishna Group in Hawaii comes up on the first page and my site

'Australian School of Meditation'
I am nos 7 and 8
cult forum comes up first page nos 4 and 5

If I may offer a couple of tips if you want to keep info about this Pagan Association on-line
Get a blog site. As far as I know (and hundreds of complaints were logged against my freesite, so I can only assume the blog has been subjected to the same treatment, but without success) you can say pretty much anything on a blog, and they do rank.
Put the main focus you want to come up in the title because apparently the Google crawler picks up on the first 3 words most of all.
Shy away from abbreviations. For ease of reading I use Siddha a lot instead of Siddhaswarupananda and SOI instead of Science of Identity and this interferes with the ranking.
The more a term shows up the higher it will rank. www.blogger.com is best of all the blog sites (and I have tried them all out) and the beta option is by far superior to the standard version. With all the free web options about you could set up mirror sites all over the place. I haven't tried this out yet, but I have heard that you can get banned if your site is an obvious mirror or obviously directing traffic to another site - so be creative.
