And ZERO results from this list when googling for basic Omnis questions.

And it was indexed and visible in Google results. Even conversations on the PostgreSQL mailing list show up when searching Google.
We hire entry-level developers and teach them Omnis. I have to BREAK them of the habit of searching online for how to do things. When I tell them they won’t find help for Omnis the same way they do for any other language/framework/tool they are less than thrilled.
Here’s a verbatim question one of them asked me 3 hours ago:

I told her to ask on our internal Q&A site and I’ll answer it there. That way it’s searchable within our internal sites at least.
And if there is an omnis tag on Stack Overflow, I’ll direct my devs to ask there.
P.S. I’ll take code highlighting the the Omnis list along with those picts. 😉
