Google describes PageRank as follows:  

“PageRank reflects our view of the importance of web pages by considering more than 500 million variables and 2 billion terms. Pages that we believe are important pages receive a higher PageRank and are more likely to appear at the top of the search results. 

PageRank also considers the importance of each page that casts a vote, as votes from some pages are considered to have greater value, thus giving the linked page greater value. We have always taken a pragmatic approach to help improve search quality and create useful products, and our technology uses the collective intelligence of the web to determine a page's importance.” 

New members of are often asked, "How did you hear about us or find us?" Their answers are typically, "I just typed in ‘Los Angeles fan site’ or ‘Angels message board’ into Google and you were the first listing. I clicked on your link, liked what I saw and joined." They are indeed correct! If you Google "Los Angeles Angels Fansite (or Fan Site)" you will find that is ranked #1 - If you Google "Los Angeles Angels Message Board," you’ll find that we're still #1 - Considering's Official Angels Fan Forum has been around much longer then us, we’re very proud of these results!

Since Feb 1st of 2008, there have been 1,412,829 posts across 53,729 threads. For those of you still in school, that’s one million, four hundred twelve thousand, eight hundred and twenty nine comments over three years! These posts cover topics ranging from Angels Baseball to politics to movie ratings to random topics. All available throughout the day, 24/7, three hundred and sixty-five days a year. was created in 2003 by founder and executive editor Chuck Richter. His vision was to create a single site that provided rich content, along with a fan friendly atmosphere and robust community feel. In 2007, Richter added a Blog to the website. The blog acted as the official page for all articles, interviews and special features. Despite all of the Angels Blogs available, including many that have been around much longer, is ranked #2 by Google. This ranking gives the Blog a higher ranking on Google than the OC Register, LA Times and ESPN -

Maybe the most impressive part of’s high Google ranking is that is an independent site. Created by the fans, for the fans, it is not beholden any corporate ownership or network guidelines. While has been asked to join groups such as, ESPN and other networks, there's just nothing better than having an advisory board of trustworthy, intelligent friends to help make decisions that better the product for our members and viewers.

When the people at Google say "Pages that we believe are important pages receive a higher PageRank" they are correct! It is our goal to ensure we earn that ranking with each and every click on our site. is the internet home for Angels fans … and Google agrees!
Love to hear what you think!
