Web Optimization Update
- 18 Comments... What do you have to say?
Web Optimization <— See this post! Doing a Google search for ‘blogs that make money‘ I kinda noticed that I’m in the #1 spot again! On Halloween of 07 not realizing I hit number one I started goofing with my links and what not. I removed a bunch of links and changed a some titles but also learned some new SEO tricks of the trade. At last they have all indexed and I’ve had a fair amount of SEO that I was tinkering with so today well you can see for yourself:
The most important part of SEO is patience! I was not shooting to be on top right away I knew if continued to work what I have learned eventually it would happen.
Also my organic search is up by 10%!
What did I do:
Exercised Patience – This cannot be stated enough. Just do what you are supposed to be doing and your efforts will off shoot an outcome that you had been working towards.
I’ll read some SEOs asking “why haven’t my links indexed yet?” Well they are only a day or week old so give it some time. Instead of worrying about it either link to sites that are already indexed or sit on your new posts and eventually they will show up in the serps.
Restructured Backlinks – Do you comment market? I do and I mainly blog on older blog posts that have been around for a few weeks. Not like it matters but it helps. I also rearranged my internal links and changed some of the titles to reflect the keywords I was looking to bank on.
Keywords – Like I said my organic search results have gone up 10% since November and just 6% in the past three weeks. I like to pride myself on being better at keyword research than other SEO things as I use a mix of highly competitive and keywords with low competition.
Followed My Own Advice – Obviously most of what I have learned I got elsewhere. I just happen to be an observant person and if people say it works you should probably be doing what works. My one piece of knowledge I would pass on is pick and choose what works for YOU! I still hear people rave about article marketing. Perhaps it works for them but I find it to be too time consuming and would rather keep my intellectual property for myself. It works, just not for me.
What worked for me? Making useful lists like Blog Marketing Tools or post with specifics like How to Get Backlinks One Way or the importance of simple SEO methods like Dofollow or Nofollow? That is the Question. These posts have been shared, bookmarked and passed around. Not to tens of thousands of readers but to enough to give me some honorable backlinks and mentions.
So there you have it. I no doubt think that my site will slip here and there but I’ve taught myself more and implemented tenfold my tactics since October 07 so I will keep you all posted.
