It took me a good ten minutes of googling to locate the details, because it just does not show up on Google, at all, at least for me.  Nor is the information visible on http://www.perlfoundation.org/ <http://www.perlfoundation.org/>, or http://yapc.org <http://yapc.org/>, or http://www.yapcna.org/ <http://www.yapcna.org/> (which errors out) or http://perl.org <http://perl.org/>, or even the DC Perl Mongers page, http://dc.pm.org/ <http://dc.pm.org/> (which has Cialis spam at the moment).

I've been wanting to use chicago.pm.org <http://chicago.pm.org/> for more than just announcing meetings when I remember, so if it's SEO you want to improve, adding posts to various blogs linking to the announcement with good keyword coverage and such is a good way to go about it. I can give out commit bits and help with how to use Statocles for anyone who wants to post to chicago.pm.org <http://chicago.pm.org/>.

I've been trying to post links to blog posts and other such that the Chicago Perl Mongers are involved in, but I've been pretty terrible about it.

Does anyone know who to talk to about that? I know a couple people who have expressed frustration about both this problem, and at the general lack of opportunities to address the problem.
