An aside about the Google search-engine . . .

When I search on Google for . . .

rule booklets

. . . the first four listings I see on Google are for the present blog.

But what if I decide to get more specific?  Say I search for . . .

card game rule booklets

If I do that, my blog comes in at number four, and only has one listing in the top eighteen.

I suppose that the basic reason for that is that there are zillions of sites dealing with card games — some of them very popular.  And I imagine that a lot of them will come up higher than my blog, even where they might not use the word “rule” or “booklet” at all.
