I developed my search engine to manage all of the links people had submitted.
My search engine gave me hundreds of keywords in the search engines.
By 2009 I started to have a lot of competition in the market.
Some folks would put up a dozen sites at once, mostly with duplicate content, but this
was years ago and Google is not as forgiving as they used to be.
2008 was the year that I stopped running my harvester and image retrieval tool.
It required a computer to run full-time and periodically I would have to work on the software.
My image retrieval tool would take a screen print automatically of their website homepage
and shrink it down to 100 pixels by 75 pixels. That worked good 15 years ago but by 2010 was better when people submitted their own images.
Then I added the settings link in the search engine so people could submit their changes to their link in my search engine.
2008 I developed my map tool.
It provides over 100 pages to Northeastern Oklahoma attractions
with a shout box, photo uploads, audio recordings, ratings, and traffic logs..

Today, there is an incredible amount of competition in the market.
Everybody and their brother has a project.
Salesmen in all forms from everywhere ...
So, ... FREE still Wins ...
Just by chance, when I started GLL it was the turn-of-the-century,
the Internet was Kumbaya, and I said I would share and swap links with anyone
who wanted to put their link on GLL, they were welcome.
It always pays for itself makes a few bucks. :)
Free however, is not Free, ...
You have to to push the buttons. :)
