Another Google update

Google rankings have become strange. One day a site is ranked high, but then the site seems to drop, then only to rise again. From what I’m reading there seems to be a revolving ranking of sites going on. Which in my eyes is odd. A few questions come to mind.

  • How do I get a newer site to show up within this revolving list of sites?
  • What does this do to my current site?
  • How many sites are in this rotation?

I guess only time will tell, but stick to your guns and promote your SEO clients to stay the course and build better content.

Great Adwords Competition Tool

Thanks to Steve at “steveblom’s blog” “marketingnewsblog.adwordstraining.org” for this little tidbit.

“Basically what they do is query Google a half a million times a day on all kinds of different keywords, and they grab the different advertisors that appear under those keywords and stick them all in a database. If you are in the top 8 they grab your ad as well, although their data isn’t that complete. It will take them longer to do enough queries to grab ALL the data (there are at least 200,000 advertisors on millions of keywords) but for only being active for a few days the volume of intelligence already gathered is enormous.

You can also search a keyword, and find the top 25 advertisors who also advertising on that term, then you can click on one of them to also see what other keywords that competitor is are advertising on.

-Steve”

AirortandHotels.com SEO Update

Hey all, well, it’s been a couple of weeks since I wrote anything….sorry…been swamped. I have a few new projects going on…which I’ll update here shorty.

AirportandHotels.com is one of those great SEO projects that makes you go….”so, that’s interesting” but then at the same time go….”what the F*ck!”

as stated before we are showing up amazingly high in yahoo…within the top 10 on most sites, but then…bam. Google can’t seem to fined us. Doubtful right. Probably.

I have been redoing a few things on the site and if they work, I’ll post my results. Keep it SEOing!

SEO is Decadent!

BMW – Get’s the Boot Rock!

Seems as though, someone at BMW thought it would be a good idea to use a javascript redirect for a doorway page on BMW parent site. Google didn’t like it and damn…they got de-listed. If that wasn’t bad enough, they need to fill out the famous “http://www.google.com/support/bin/request.py” form.

Well read it and learn….Content is key…try not to be sneaky.

Finally…Big Results

I finally got a number #1 for something I wanted.
“Dallas Aiport Hotels” + “Yahoo” = “Dallas.AirportandHotels.com” which is us.

So some things do work I guess. Although, we are having some issues with Google, I at least got a very cool “#1″ spot in Yahoo. Still trying new things with some of my other sites, but I will rethink a couple of decisions.

1. To stop using SubDomains?
2. To use KeyPhrases- as mentioned below.

Small Business SEO Sadness

link: http://www.clickz.com/experts/search/local_search/print.php/3531061

Well I’m continually trying to swallow as much info on SEO as possible since taking on this challenge and thought I’d track my findings as I go. I’m going to link to some great articles. This one is on the SEO not favoring the small business. Some of the main points are: Google designates certain sites as authorities

Direct Quote – Awesome Advice!
“Here’s how:
* Identify your top local keyword phrases.
* Perform searches for those keyword phrases on Google and Yahoo!
* Identify which authorities show up most frequently for your important local searchers.
* Identify which categories within those authorities are ranking.
* Take special note of patterns or consistencies that you see.
* Direct your ad spending toward the authoritative categories.
* Enjoy the destination and organic distribution value of your buys.”

SEO Project: Roomrate.com

Roomrate.com has finally reared it’s head in the Yahoo directory. I finally feel as though, my work has paid off. Yahoo, has had our roomrate in some no where listings that could never be found by any of our searches.

Now – we have grown to a very respectable listing with our chosen search words.
