Thanks again for the affirmations and ideas about how to make this page even better. I will work on anchor links, etc.
This page "happened" when I found a really good keyword but was somewhat perplexed about how to use it. I already had quite a few "top 10" and "ten best" pages on my site. My first inclination was to just make it a "gathering place" to better showcase those pages that have always been some of my most visited.
I forced myself to think "bigger" about the vision for this page and realized that what I really wanted was for it to become somewhat of an "index" to my site. My first hurdle was that Minnesota is historically divided into seven distinct tourist regions. And I have pages about that. How to now claim ten???
As I went through all of my resource material I saw that I might have a different view of the state and one that would be helpful to my readers. All of my ongoing research affirmed that these ten actually were distinct enough to be come one of a "top ten" list. And, that after all the years of working on my site, I now had enough supporting pages to do this page.
I also decided to limit affiliate links on this page because my goal is to have my readers go to the other pages...not to an affiliate that might pay me .5 for my link to them.
Again, thank you, thank you for affirmations that I'm on the right track.
