TechShop Website Achieves Google Top 10 Results Ranking
MENLO PARK, Calif. , July 4, 2006 -- The link to the TechShop website has risen into the top 10 page results from a search for the TechShop name.

"When we launched TechShop, our site didn't show up even in the first 10 pages on a Google search," said TechShop's co-founder Jim Newton. "But everyone is very excited about TechShop, and our web traffic has skyrocketed in the last few months."

At the 2006 Make Magazine Maker Faire in San Mateo, TechShop announced that it would open its first facility on the San Francisco peninsula in the summer of 2006. Since then, over 550 people have expressed interest in becoming members and taking classes at TechShop.
