How To Know If Google Knows You
Google's Got My Number
My main court reporting website http://www.ToddOlivas.com is indexed by Google 246 times as of today. That means that Google knows about 246 separate pages on my website. This is a good thing. If someone searches for key terms that appear on any of my 246 web pages, Google serves up a link to my page. This is a very, very good thing indeed!

A Value Addition To Your Law Firm
I write often on this blog about bringing more value to your position as a paralegal or legal secretary. My theory is more value equals more pay. Little tricks like these can help you become more well-rounded when it comes to the internet. For example: who knows, maybe your boss's website is not being found by Google and by your running the procedure above you bring the crisis to his/her attention? And by bringing the problem to light, you set the fire alarm off in the minds of the higher-ups and they get crackin' on getting the firm's website optimized and listed in the search engines.; which brings in more business; which makes your job at the firm ever more secure!
Now that's a value add if I ever saw one!
