Site Ranks High on Google

We, as a team, have worked hard over the past 19 months to establish ourselves on the web through our website, social media outlets, online publications, and through exhaustive online publication of our activities and work. Our site has been designed to be a useable and informative resource to others looking into the fields of high-powered rocketry, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is also our hope that visitors will return to keep up to date with the projects we are working on, students we are engaging, and news we are producing.

It seems that someone (or an algorithm) has taken notice of this presence. Our site now ranks among the top results (if not the top result) for USLI-project related queries on Google. The way Google ranks pages in terms of relevance to a search query isn't publicly available, but descriptions of how it determines a site to be the most relevant on the web to a given search query are found on Google's site as well as Wikipedia .

Check out where our site currently comes up for the following non-targeted queries in Google's search engine:
