    I still have to go with
    Wall of torchered folks
    (that’s what I said as we were in the moment, so it’s true to the experience)

    Incidentally, we know that the “CrossFit MPH – Washington, DC” in the banner is annoying and redundant, but it’s the only way we know to get Google to find us. If anyone knows a better way, we’re open to suggestions.

      can you just make the text the same color as the background? so it’s there, but you can’t actually see it?

    CrossFit MPH…where excellence is expected!

    i am no computer person, but i think there is some way to reformat the banner so that it’s not just a “picture” of the letters that say CrossFit MPH, but actually computer-recognizable letters. I think the process is called OCR. If you could do that to your banner, the banner would be legible to Google as text.

    That’s the extent of my knowledge. Helpful, huh?

    Does your WordPress have a place to add Meta Data? Those are words that search engines will gather info from. Might be another thing to look into.


    • coach | August 6, 2009 at 1:24 pm

      Nope–no Meta Data adds, Matt.

    or, you could type the banner letters in black. that way, they won’t show, but they will be found by google?

    • mikeheartspullups | August 6, 2009 at 1:37 pm

      Oh, that’s what she [Jen] said. My bad.

    • coach | August 6, 2009 at 1:38 pm

      It doesn’t work that way, unfortunately. We type that into a text box without the option to format the text itself.


      • mikeheartspullups | August 6, 2009 at 3:00 pm

        can you make the text tiny? not a full solution, but at least less noticeably redundant…

      Technique is the order of the day today. We are working hard to get into the full squat position.


    • mworden | August 6, 2009 at 4:20 pm

      Nice job Tod!

      • voidwhichbinds | August 6, 2009 at 5:11 pm

        thanks bro

        i think they turned the gravity down to give me a false sense of power…

  10. mchofia | August 6, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    The bad news: I tried googling Crossfit Washington DC and I didn’t make it to the MPH website. The good news: when I googled Crossfit MPH I found some very favorable press.

    Congratulations the buzz begins!

    That article is awesome – makes it easy to explain to friends and I’ve forwarded it around. Excellent…

    • serenawannabe | August 7, 2009 at 10:08 am

      I did the same thing. I loved that article.

    For future reference for myself:
    Snatch for sid= elbows, stand up, squat down and hold.
