Lego Simpsons Minifigures SERIES 2 COMPLETE

Silly Billy has Completed his Collection of Series 2 Simpsons Minifigures

People always ask “what was the last Minifigure that you got”.
Well the last minifigure was Smithers, this does not necessarily mean it is the rarest it was simply the last one that we found. Conversely, the first Lego Minifigure discovered was Homer Simpson.

We swap Lego Minifigures at Silly Billy’s, and we currently have two Maggie’s and One Homer for Swapping. Does this mean that Maggie is the most popular and prolific Minifgure of this Series, well maybe, but we just don’t know:

Alexa Rank


I have been working for a little while now at increasing the visibility of – One factor from my years of research into SEO and tools for the promotion of websites on line has been the Alexa Rank of domains. Just as Google creates a set of indexes and pigeon holes in which the search engine owners pigeon hole your site, then similarly the ranking of your site by domain is important as well, this is a factor for consideration in ranking within various search engines.

On 17th May 2015 was ranked on as 9,910,064 – this was before any intervention by myself and now since plugging away at promoting in various ways both on Social Media and elsewhere this is now what is seen today Sunday 14th June 2015:

Alexa Rank
Alexa Rank 15th June 2015

That is 2,012,059, a change of over 7 MILLION places in Alexa Ranking Order in just under one calendar month.

If you want to know more than contact me via seo at or any other contact method you wish.

New Signage for Silly Billy’s

Silly Billy’s Independent Toy Shop
has NEW Signs

Well, it has been a long time coming but today the tattered signs that were outside Silly Billy’s Toy Shop, Yorkshire, have been replaced by the very talented Sign Writer, Gordon Fox. Mr Fox spent many days creating what he described as his first “hand painted shop signs”. Gordon is an old friend of Bill’s and he has done a sterling job, he also put the signs up today with his friend, Adrian.

We are really pleased with the way our new signs at Silly Billy’s have turned out and if you would like to use Gordon for any of his more usual chalk-board based sign writing, or indeed a bespoke sign for your business you can get in touch with him through Facebook at

As well as the exciting new outdoor signage we have also had our Shop Floor Mats renewed.

You can view the gallery for Silly Billy’s Shop Signs here
