Google Page 1 Out Of 192 Million Results

Google Page 1It 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  :).

    Well done martin! That’s a great achievement. An achievement only someone who has been working on the net can really appreciate. I wrote an article called “archers in the roman army” about 14 months ago to promote a little experiment I was doing. It got to number one on google. Ok ok, I know what you’re going to say, I’m the only one who wrote an article like that. I was still chuffed though.
    Great achievement mate, if I was there I’d buy you a pint.

    In such a small time frame you have come a long way, Martin.

      But thanks,

    Number 1 out of 43,400,000 results on any keyword is no mean achievement to garner and without any secret strategem.

    • Martin Jun 22, 2010 @ 21:47

      You’re very kind – thanks!

      Persistence – that’s the secret stratagem 🙂

    Truly nothing is achieved without a sustained effort and persistent hard work.

    Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody
