Who is up for the Challenge?
I’m sitting here late at night doing some market research and wanted to see how one of my keywords were doing, “Social Technologies”. You can see the results above, let me explain what they mean just to make sure we are all on the same page.
First this is geographically done meaning no matter where you are on the world you will not see the same results as I do. Google has changed their algorithm to provide us with the most relevant search results. One of those changes is by location. I tell you this because if you do a search and don’t see the exact same results you might question where am I receiving my search results from.
First the key word “Social Technologies” which is one of the terms I use to describe all the Social sites, media, networking…etc the are all just technologies to help us better connect with people on a global scale.
Next “About 275,000,000 results (0.19 seconds)” which means there are 275 million links created by people that are related to “Social”, “Technologies” and “Social Technologies”. Now if you use proper SEO and tag your content, website and/or video correctly you will have better results.
Description: Social Technologies
Link/URL: www.socialtechnologies.com or www.domainname.com/social-technologies or any various of the two.
SEO: Alt Tags, Meta Tags, Descriptions…etc are all properly coded with “Social Technologies”
Tags: “Social Technologies”
Relevant content: Written, recorded audio or video talking about Social Technologies in the correct context. For a quick example if I was to write and article talking about fishing and every paragraph I added “Social Technologies” it wouldn’t be relevant which now the search engines can scan content of all kinds and decipher if it’s relevant.
I wanted to give you a little insight before I tell you what my Social Technologies challenge is.
If you look back at the picture you can see I have put a RED arrow pointing to the links. When you go through the list you can see I am not even close to the top. My website is 4th from the bottom on the first page, now don’t get me wrong it takes people a lot of hard SEO work, proper marketing to get to the first page. Which I am going to challenge myself over the next 30 days to crush the first page of “Social Technologies”.
Here is my own personal 30 day Challenge
1) To have one of links rank #1 on the first page of Google for the key word “Social Technologies”
2) To have the entire first page with just my content, of course it will all be relevant information helping people how to use Social Technologies properly. No false backlinks…etc no Black Hat SEO tricks all proper marketing that I have learned over the years.
Today’s date is February 12th, 2012 and I will do a follow up post by March 12th 2012. Now if I complete the challenge sooner I will post my results before.
Home work for you guys reading this…If you’re in business and want to really get in front of the people searching for the keyword that your customers are searching for. I would recommend you do the exact same thing I am doing with one of your main key words.
I would love to see your results before and after. Send them to me by either post or e-mail @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me know if you have any questions.
Good luck 🙂
Love & Chi
