The bike blog experiment did not go as well as I would have liked.  I didn’t have the time to market it, and it didn’t rank very well for the keywords it had.  However, I did get complete results from that test.  To not bore you with the specifics of the test, all you need to know is that longtail seo does work.  Also, you can catch really easy traffic by posting recent news, but everyone knows that.  It is tremendously easy to catch traffic looking for that specific title.

Good results to actually have recieved from a solid test, we will get a totally different field to test in the SEO contest.

tips:

1. Make sure your title and url have the keyword of the article.

2. Make sure the article header is what you believe they will search for.

3. Create specific pages for all of your keywords, do not put everything on one page and have a big mess of keywords.  Separate the categories

4. Don’t bother post about it unless it is new.  Sounds very negative, but if it is already semi-old news, someone will have posted about it right away and is already cached/linked to before you and therefore higher ranked.  

5. Mix your keywords up! This isn’t web 1.0, nor is it ‘seo 1.0’ spamming your keywords does nothing for you.  Google does not care about keyword density.  Get a variety of keywords, or your specific keywords in multiple possibilities of input. 

eg. (dan’s wine, dan wine, wine, dan, wine dan) 

As bad as that example is I think you get the point.  There is no point of typing FREE WINE more than once, type ‘wine for free’ or ‘wine free of charge’ blah blah blah.

 

Yes, the post ended with blah blah blah….. what are you going to do about it?

SEO COMPETITION PRIZES!!

SEO COMPETITION PRIZES!!

I am currently planning out the rules to the first SEO Review seo challenge.  The contest is going to be two weeks long, on a real word.  The winner will be the highest ranked in that word in Google.  The contest will only count google results.

This will be a precursor to the first official contest, which will be a month long, and be featuring a ‘new’ word.  See the wikipedia page to get a better idea of what this sort of thing is all about.

By the way…. the picture is bogus.  No prizes for this one yet.  The main contest may have a prize, I am not sure what that will be yet however.
