Log in issues today

I wanted to let you know that we had a server glitch today that caused some folks to receive an wrong password notice when they tried to login.
It should be resolved now. It was entirely a goof on our part and you should be able to login now. I apologize for any inconvenience.

If you need to reset your password (even though you saw that message in error) and need help, please hit the contact link at the bottom of the page to reach the help desk (response may take a few hours). Sorry about the snafu...

Yeah, there was a moment there when I could not get my fiberglass trailer fix, with both this site and FGRV down at the same time. Was not too worried though.

Thanks for letting us know. Oftentimes, folks think they've done something wrong, or it's their internet service provider. Nice to know it was neither

Another issue I come across from time to time is actually finding the site. I believe this to be a Google issue rather than with the forum. I am in the habit of typing Escape into the Google search bar which then brings up links (most of the time) to the 4 sites I visit regularly. This site the Fiberglass RV site, Fiberglass Trailers for Sale Canada and the ETI site. Occasionally, such as this morning some of these sites do not appear and I have to make a more specific search such as including the word Fiberglass or Trailers or even Community in the Google search bar. This is not so much an issue for me as I know how to get there eventually, but I wonder about visitors, specifically those looking for the classified ads. Any idea how visitors find this site the first time?

Glenn its not me I am wondering about. My system works for me. I just wonder about people just setting out. The one person who may want to purchase our trailer hasn't found this site yet.

I expect they just Google something like "small fiberglass trailers" and stuff turns up. Google knows

A more common, and probably more effective, method is to let your browser suggest your recently or commonly visited sites - that's not dependent on any search engine. This works with common browsers (Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc).

I understand that Gerri's point was that Google may not consistently show the Escape Forum as a top match for "Escape". Given that "escape" is a common English word, used for many purposes and thus in many websites, it would be surprising if this forum were the top match. I just tried a Google search for just "escape", and ETI's site came up in the second page of results, with this forum in page 4; I don't think that's unreasonable. I agree that a new person looking for information about Escape travel trailers would likely put "trailer" or even "RV" in the search; both lead immediately to the ETI site and this forum, and I would be surprised if that changed.

Suggestions offered by a Google search bar (which is simply that address bar in Chrome) should be for common searches starting with what you typed in. Since the public's interests change, those suggestions will (and should) change. Just "Escape" is likely to correspond to huge numbers of searches for other topics, such as the Ford Escape.

Brian,

What you get in a search and what somebody elsewhere get in a search is determined by previous searches, as well as by the key words. Google knows everything.

Glen, just for fun I searched "small fiberglass trailers" in Google and this site did not come up. In the first 4 pages that is. ETI did. I realize this is only an issue for me. I'm not complaining, I'm just trying to sell our trailer. I need to get into the heads of potential buyers and find out how they look for a trailer.
