RHDefense is where I fight like I'm the third monkey, trying to get on Noah's Ark

I’ve been involved in the Internet since before it was commercially available.  While (somewhat) aimlessly pursuing my undergraduate degree in Philosophy, I became involved with some computer scientists and philosophers who were looking into neural networks and other cognitive science issues.  Without getting into too long of a story here, the ultimate point is that my longevity on the Internet taught me a thing or two about websites and search engines.

So even prior to becoming a criminal defense attorney, I knew that I wanted FresnoCriminalDefense.com.

Unfortunately, someone else owned it, although the person who owned it wasn’t doing anything with it.

A few weeks ago, a third-party contacted me, stating that they had purchased the domain and asking if I wanted to buy it.  After a little haggling over the price, it was mine.

After I got it, I worked on building a website there and shortly after I noticed that I’d placed on the first page of Google for the phrase “fresno criminal defense.”

I already owned RHDefense.com and had worked hard on developing that site and blog (both of which also place well with the search engines).  So I made a decision: keep the focus for FresnoCriminalDefense.com regional, focusing on criminal defense law in Fresno County and its immediate environs; the blog at RHDefense.com will be for more general commentary.

The real trick would have been keeping the content fresh and useful on both sites!

Well, as I’ve been working on revising this site (rickhorowitz.com) — and it’s now April 2024 as I revise this post — in preparation for moving Unspun™ content here, and hopefully starting to do some more personal blogging, I should point out that I long ago gave up on maintaining two separate sites.

What helped me decide was that someone decided he was going to be “Fresno Defenders, PC” (“PC” is short for “Professional Corporation”) — and even moved into my building, on the same floor as me — and then the person who originally lost FresnoCriminalDefense.com ended up buying FresnoDefenders.com.

So, I kind of threw in the towel, although I still own the FresnoCriminalDefense.com domain, and just went back to the original RHDefense.com.

You can find out all kinds of good criminal defense things about me there.
