Posts Tagged ‘seo review’
The search terms that I originally started this long journey trying to be found on were “seo review” (yes, I was aiming for a search that required quotes) I have just reached the last position on the front page. That may change if my updates are reduced in frequency, so I took a screenshot 😀
It only gets about 11 searches a day, but I wanted to get onto that front page for it as a beginning project. The journey so far has been great. I have met quite a few very educational contacts, and I have learned more that I thought I would. In midst of all the confusion, this has resulted in an seo consult for myself on another website. I am going to track the changes they go through and we will see how well these principles will work on an established website.
By the way. For those asking.. I am still on page 4 if you remove the quotes. Did I say I was going home yet? lol /cry
Until next post.. see you on twitter!
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.
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?
Posting on this blog is a wonderful experience, and to add to this experience, I wrote an article for http://ezinearticles.com/
I wrote and submit an article just over a week ago, and sat back to wait out the 1-4 weeks it takes to get an article approved or declined. Well, today my wait ended, it got approved!! It is about what to do / not do in SEO
If you have read many of my posts on this blog, the article will be repetitive, but if you are new here, it is a nice way to catch up!!
Getting the email saying this was approved was so exciting for me. It isn’t quite the same as getting published, but it is exciting.
I promise that tomorrow will be a more relevant post. To everyone who checks here regularly, I am sorry I owe you a double post.
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.
There are many wordpress blogs around that seem to have no resemblance at all of a blog. For example.
Is actually a one post page, that links to the companies main site. Is this blog just being used as a linkback? I believe so. However, the pagerank is 0/10 so it really isn’t a very valuable link.(Anchored very well however)
ANOTHER 1 post blog. This is leading me to wonder how many of these there are around wordpress, blogger, weebly, and various sites.
THANKFULLY, both pages have terrible blog addresses and they aren’t really doing anyone an injustice. If they were holding up valuable subdomains such as seo.wordpress.com I think everyone would be a little perturbed.

claims to be done by David McCaldin… I guess we just wait and see!!
I am currently conducting an experiment in which I use as many keywords as possible to generate many very low percentage search hits. It seems like the long tail is catching a few after just one post per page. I have 16 unique views, and one of them stretches as long as a search for “motorcycle long distance trials best bike”
How is that for catching the leftovers??
This was sparked by only being found on my blog by maybe 5 sets of keywords. Updates to follow on the best way to optimize for “longtail leftovers”
