Reggae Music Links

Yeah Mon! So a while back I built a quick one page website called Reggae Music Links as a sub domain on my website

I was just doing it for fun at the time, since I enjoy reggae music and was looking around at various musicians websites.

Then I check out the site recently and low and behold it’s getting all kinds of traffic! Actually it’s #1 on google for a search on “reggae music links”

Tie Dyed in LA

Man we have been busy this year and especially this April. We had two back to back road trips plus our internet sales on our website have really started to take off. So life is pretty sweet now. We start selling at the Sandy Mountain Market this Saturday and then at the Gresham Farmers Market the week after that.

Check out this video that American Apparel made of us working with them… I think they are still editing it but here is the rough draft anyways….


Made By Hippies Dot Com is the #1 site on Yahoo for a “Tie Dye For Sale” Search!!!

Man, the traffic for Made By Hippies Dot Com has been increasing steadily ever since August 2008 but this latest push has been very impressive. The last couple of weeks traffic has surged to well over 100 visitors a day. About half the traffic is from website links and the other half is from search engines. I have been receiving more and more orders too, so that is great!

Today I noticed some extra traffic being generated from the Yahoo search engine. It caught my eye because so far I have been getting most of my search engine traffic from google. So I checked it out and the results are awesome!!!

This is definitely my biggest search engine accomplishment to date. For the search term “Tie Dye For Sale” on yahoo my site ranks #1!!!
