Hi, :-)

I just posted an expanded version of the "Why for Home?" page.

There's quite a bit more text in there. With someone's comment of
"text, text, text..." still ringing in my ears, i feel I'd better
explain my thinking a bit.

My 2 cents is that search engine spiders eat text. They don't parse
graphics and multimedia in that respect, they scan text (although
graphics and multimedia are another means of getting search engine
rankings, when planted properly).

So there's quite a bit of text there, and I've tried to incorporate
lots of useful key words and phases.

The layout is pretty plain-vanilla ATM. Many of the site pages need
imaginative work on the presentation of the page content: boxes,
screenshots, graphics, etc. The "Why at Home?" page is no different.
At that time, there will inevitably be some re-working of the text, to
blend with the new layout, and I'll be happy to work with anybody on

LibreOffice is certainly not in a position to put a lot of money into
paid SE placements at the moment, so we have to work hard on scoring
high in organic results. Text-intensive pages are one means to that.

LibreOffice is bound to gain quite a bit of exposure other than by
search engine results, but we cannot afford not to fight aggressively
on *every* single front. So we have to take as humble an attitude as
the least-read blog on the web, and work to maximize our position in
every way.

Please feel free to make helpful comments and suggestions...

I want to try and work on one page every day or 2 this week... Help is welcome.
