<math>Insert formula here</math>== how much content is needed for inclusion and how to promote a CC site?? ==

I started an open soapmaking wiki in which all content is Creative Commons licensed. So far I've had difficulty (and resistance) promoting it among the soapmaking community through Yahoo! groups. I went about promoting it the wrong way, but there's no help from google or other search engines, even when you try really hard to find a free soapmaking content site. Try as you might, it just doesn't have the 'pagerank' to be useful. I think I might just continue to put content into it myself, and if it doesn't take off, I'll turn what I have at that point into a book and sell it. But this of course defeats the purpose of CC licensed info. If anyone can help, please help me. People's response to me so far is that I have something to gain from hosting and trying to promote the site. I'm not even running ads. I work as a web developer. This is supposed to be a build it and they will come type of thing. I have one other moderator. There seems to be a trust disconnect. Maybe there's just not enough information there yet.

wow, I have to say I love creative commons in theory

...practice not so much. I made an album, it went out of print thanks to Tower Records so I decided that I wanted to give it away, its a christmas record, but not a sucky one so I t seemed in keeping with the spirt. I gave it a creative commons license. So that it could live new exciting lives as soundtracks or samples or what have you. I wanted to list it so that it could be searchable within CC. Almost two hours later I have yet to find a place to put anything. Now if i had remixed my music, there are forty places to do that. but where can you give something, thats not remixed? it seems like a simple content directory would be so much more useful. uggh sorry I know this isn't the ranting space, that is probably hid under some obscure sub menu three levels down,

so heres the deal if someone wants to list this somewhere cool its a christmas record: Snaildartha : the story of Jerry the Christmas Snail-which is more a less a retelling of the life of Buddha...only through a Holiday snail.. and its Soul Jazz.

Currently it lives here Snaildartha[1]

If someone doesn't want to list it somewhere, thats fine too,
