Still waiting for Google – Real SEO in Action – Part 06

Another two weeks passes by and some small changes in our rankings have occurred.

So where is My SEO Guy?? 

Last time we reported in, it was fluctuating between position # 23 and position # 56…    Things have settled now and My SEO Guy is holding in it’s page three between position #28-30.

We spent a little time in the “Google Sandbox” with the index page of My SEO Guy not being found in the Google index for a number of weeks, but steady work and good content have enabled us to be “found” again.

As before…   we expect the My SEO Guy ranking to continue to improve.


…and where is  SEO Grimpond

SEO Grimpond maintains it’s first page ranking for  – “seo brisbane”, but has slipped to Position # 10   SEO Grimpond continues to hold this position despite the many changes we have made in the last few weeks, and this illustrates a couple of simple principles.

  1. Longevity counts.  Having a site up, running and findable for a period of time has some value, and the longer that site is “up” the more the value increases.
  2. Changes take time.  Changes in Google rankings can take weeks, even months  or more to ‘solidify’ and ‘settle down’  Once SEO Grimpond reached the first page, after a slow climb, it has held it’s position with only some basic regular work.
  3. Focus counts.  If you want a site to rank for a specific key word, phrase or group of keywords, then that site should have a focus on the subject matter related to those keywords.  Sounds simple yes..  but often sites do not have a specific  focus, and try to be a ‘jack-of-all-trades’ type site.
  4. Getting the simple things right works.  We have not done anything tricky to get this site to be ranked on the first page…   we made sure that the common and simple elements of SEO were completed and correct.

SEO Grimpond will drop a little further as changes we have made start to have an influence,  but we may just try to keep this site on the first page as well as My SEO Guy..

That will make another interesting project.
