  • I take it that your website is famous.tm.


    You are in the Live Search index, to the tune of 230 pages.


    Although your domain name contains the word "famous", that isn't the only factor in getting good search results, especially in an area like this, which is extremely competitive.


    This forum post has some tips on improving your ranking:




    One problem is that you have very few backlinks - Yahoo! has only three listed - and you will need a lot more from good, relevant sources to improve your ranking.  For example, a search on "famous people" turned up a number of websites.  The first of these had 486 backlinks, the second in the list had 3.5 million.


    Continue adding good content, but cultivate backlinks.
