Easy Blog Integration Part 2
10 days. That's all it took to move DotComOnomics from >1,000 to #1. What am I talking about? I'm talking about a Search Engine Optimization experiment that started on May 14, 2008...eleven days ago.
At the time, DotComOnomics wasn't in the top 1,000 results on either Google or Yahoo for the phrase "easy blog integration". There were 2 million results on Google and 51 million on Yahoo, and we were nowhere to be found. Our flagship product, PageProLive, allows us to integrate a blog into virtually any existing website's design...so this is an experiment that hits close to home.
I told you in Part 1 that Thomas would be writing a 'landing page' designed to attract search engines...and that we'd report on the traffic to that page. Well, that page never got written. The only thing written was the post, about the experiment. That's the page that's #1 on Yahoo. Click on the image to see a larger version...it's really Yahoo, and we're really number one.
We jumped no fewer than 1,000 positions in 10 days or less by writing a single article on our blog. It's not an amazing article...it's pretty good, but it's not up for a Pulitzer or anything. The key is - as we always teach - good content and great code. Search engines love websites that are well-done...and the code generated by the PageProLive system is well-done. We haven't even checked Google to see if Part 1 is even in their index yet...we assumed that it would take a few weeks.
In other words, the PageProLive system hasn't just met our expectations...it's exceeded them by a large margin. Honestly, I expected to jump to 300-400 in about three weeks, and to steadily climb to the top 20 during the month after that. Imagine your own website performing this well: whatever you write about would probably get more attention than anything your competitors are doing. That's why we built it: so that anyone can edit their own website AND have a site with high-quality, search-engine-friendly code. It's the best of both worlds.
