I have to disagree, fixing later can be a lot of work and problems (OK,
doing it "smart" from start is a lot of work too...or not....I dont know
yet)...but, do you know how many USD are spent daily to get first in
google results? so, the same, if you have...let's say....10 entries, the
difference for first one and last one can be huge....but maybe I am
wrong (nobody will know until this is done)....

This is for me a different problem than first one....I dont want and I
wont get any money from anyone to get better in the list (maybe it wont
happen at all)....but I think a clear policy from start is better than
your idea of "let's see"

Again, let's try to make it "good" from start....if we can just make
everyone "the same" (and excuse me cause I am not sure if this is clear
in my poor English), let's start doing that...

BTW, you can consider myself to help with anything required for
this...except writing in English please :)

Best regards
