It may not be a big deal to you but it is to me.
After 2 years of work this site is finally on the first page of Google, out of 192,000,000 results, for the search term Online Home Business Tips.
And here’s the picture to prove it.
OK, I’m only at number 10, but hey – who’s counting?
So why the excitement?
I’ve held higher spots (including number 1 for some search terms) but they were not competitive terms.
I’m at number 5 (and I’ve hung around at somewhere between 4 and 9 for a long time) for the term Global Abundance Program, but that’s out of only 1,240,000 results.
And I’m at number 1 out of 43,400,000 results for the term Create an Awesome Home Business – but that’s the title of the site, so I should be up there somewhere.
But number 10 out 192,000,000 results for a term like Online Home Business Tips – well that, to me, is an achievement.
And I’m enjoying it.
My secret strategy? Sorry – no secret strategies. I’ve only done exactly what I’ve written about throughout this site.
Nothing even remotely approaching black hat. Not even a trace of grey. No tricks, no secret systems and no expensive SEO consultants.
It’s all here on the site, all the SEO techniques I’ve used, so browse the SEO category (under ‘See Articles On:’ in the sidebar to the right) and enjoy.
And if you have any questions by all means drop me a line – I’d love to hear from you.
Update: 4th March, 2010:
This morning out of curiosity I re-checked this site in Google, fully expecting it to have dropped back to the second page of results.
What I saw blew me away: it’s at number 1 out of 193,000,000 results – and here’s the picture to prove it.
I was utterly gob-smacked – but delighted :).
