Marketing Castle Rock Ranking Took A Step Back

Two Steps Forward One Step Back

I finished the day last night enjoying the fact that we had moved our ranking for our 3 chosen keywords – those being Marketing Castle Rock – up from a page 21 three days ago to a spot on page 2. If you followed along you will see that one of our efforts alone moved us quickly from page 6 to page 2. On page 2 we had the number 4 spot, so page number 1 seemed to be within near reach.

Checking in this morning and out spot had taken a step back for a poorer ranking. OK, it’s actually only one position, so it really isn’t a big deal, but yet psychologically, it’s a step back from the high emotion of success to a set back of a full one position (not bad).

That’s what often happens, in marketing just as we often experience in life.

What happened here is kind of funny, but it also illustrates a point.

The number 1 spot on the Google Search results for Marketing Castle Rock has since we started about 3 days ago been held by a website that actually is called castlerockmarketing.com

It’s kind of funny, for said company has nothing to do with traditional marketing as such, but actually seems to be primarily an auction house for Cattle. That’s right they ones that say muuh. I guess that’s what I get for living in the West out in rural Colorado in the town of Castle Rock.

Now, first off, it proves a point that is worth for you to notice and that is, if you can obtain an URL (i.e. a domain name) that actually entails your keywords, then your rate of success for ranking for same words shoots straight to the top – even without you doing much of anything. Also as I noticed in this case, throughout all my searches for the 3 words of Marketing Castle Rock, these cattle auction guys held the number 1 position, so your position, just due to the right URL, is stronger than most of other efforts you can make (at least for now that seems to be the case).

This is an important point that goes towards how you choose your domain name and it should give you plenty of reason to think about what URL you could think of that might help you in your business.

As I said, these guys have held the number 1 spot throughout and today they even took up the number 3 spot and if we don’t count the Google Local Places results also the number 6 spot. Why?

Why you might ask, did they all of a sudden take up these extra spots, earning them a full 3 important and valuable spots on a page 1 on Google for MY chosen keywords of Marketing Castle Rock?

Beats me.

But they apparently have a Facebook page and a Twitter account and these two popped up and made an appearance this morning for the number 3 and number 6 spot.

Again, the names they have for these two accounts includes the words Castle Rock and Marketing or at least mkgt as short for marketing. Which gets back to the point I made before on the importance that Google places on your URL or Name. For you this means, that you should not only secure adequate account names for your business on the social media. Account names that clearly reference your business name or your URL name.

From a point of view of search engine results, it means finding something that’s descriptive of what it is you offer.

If you are a plumber and you call your company ABC, then it probably won’t help you much in any search results for plumbing services on its own. But change your name that you reference your business to throughout to ABC Plumbing and that changes straight away. Get a Facebook Fanpage called something like facebook.com/abcplumbing and perhaps a twitter account called twitter.com/abcplumbing and you have secured some pretty good real estate.

Now if you don’t post to these accounts once in a while, it’s probably not going to do you much good, yet, in checking in on the facebook and twitter accounts of my cattle competition guys, I found that they posted last on June 2nd 2015 and October 10 2014 on their accounts respectively. In other words not very recently and not very actively, but this only underlines the point of the relative strength that Google do place on the social media account (connected as said to the names of same accounts in relation to what you wish to be found under in a Google Search).

One may wonder, why the respective facebook and twitter accounts didn’t appear in my earlier search results, and when you ask me, my answer would be: Beats me.

Google sometimes works in mysterious ways.

That’s alright too. If it was easy to circumvent everybody would do so, and we would be left with little relevancy to what we found when we performed searches, I suspect.

The changes in the search results on and off, also proves a point I have made previously in this Marketing Castle Rock saga, which is that the internet is a live place. You can do your part to rank well, but others out there are doing things and especially when they are doing things that are relevant for the keywords that you are hoping to get ranked for, it will change the search results too, possibly pushing you back again.

Said in another way, it isn’t a constant.

It also goes back to what I have also posted previously in this continuing story about the fact that Search Engine Optimization (SEO) work is not a one time thing. You don’t just do the work once and get the results and leave it at that. If you do, it’s only a matter of time and your ranking is gone. The more competition for your chosen words, the quicker your ranking will be gone.

No, you will have to have some continuous efforts, but as I have stated previously, it might just be very well worth it.

Well, we will make a few more efforts and see where we will get with our quest to reach a page 1 spot in Google Search results for the words Marketing Castle Rock.

Marketing Castle Rock Now We Are At Page 2

We Are Now On Page 2 For Marketing Castle Rock

I spent the afternoon on the playground with my two small kids and my wife. I think we ended up there for about small 3 hours. Whew! That’s a lot for me to cope with, but the kids had fun and that was the important bit.

Following the playground we did some grocery shopping and returned home for some light dinner.

Curious as I am, I couldn’t help myself for checking where we were at.

And where were we?

On Page 2 of Google’s search results for the 3 chosen keywords: Marketing Castle Rock.

Yes, this is yet another follow up on the Get Ranked For Marketing Castle Rock saga, the work of which I commenced about 3 days ago. 3 days ago I was at page 21 and now I am at page 2. Not bad for just a few days with some effort put in place. On top of that some very low key efforts. Nothing terribly fancy. Nothing that cost me any money, only a little time and of course the implementation of some very key things that I know works.

Here are the results for current listing (click image to be able to read it):

For this latter segment of you, I naturally offer my services to make things happen for you. Imagine what a Google high ranking for relevant search terms relevant to your business could do for you…!!

Success With Ranking High For Marketing Castle Rock Just Ahead

When SEO Becomes A Game – Ranking For Marketing Castle Rock Continued

We continue our saga on how we are getting ranked high in Google’s search results for the keywords: Marketing Castle Rock.

To review what has been going on till date, please visit these two posts: www.amazingideasinc.com/marketing-castle-rock-time-to-take-my-own-medicine/ and http://www.amazingideasinc.com/quick-follow-up-on-marketing-castle-rock/

The two posts explain why I’m doing this and why it’s important. They also explain why my chosen keywords in fact are not the presenting the smartest choice and why I may in fact never get to a really good ranking for them either. Indeed, you may wish to review these posts just to see what you really shouldn’t do and instead to learn more about what you should do, so that you can get decent results.

Anyways, I just want to make this post short and just give you another update to our ranking.

When doing this kind of work, SEO, which stands for Search Engine Optimization, can actually become fun. It almost becomes a game. For you are doing small implementations of things, waiting a bit for the search engines to follow up with them crawling the sites and then you check in again to see if what you did carried any weight and made any positive changes for what you are tying to achieve.

My efforts and if you will experiment started a couple of days ago. I put out the public announcement that I wanted to pay attention to some of the local businesses in the area in which I live and my business is located, Castle Rock. I made it known that I would lie to help more local Castle Rock businesses with their marketing and help them implement the right strategies, tools and marketing systems that will grow their businesses, revenues and ultimately their profits.

The following day, I kind of realized that I haven’t made any efforts at all into making my services nor my company’s presence rank in any search engines. I help businesses with marketing and love to see the positive outcomes the come about from my help, but in my eagerness of helping other businesses, I had completely forgotten to implement similar strategies that I recommend any business to do for my own business. In other words, I was a bad example of what I tell others to do.

So the day before yesterday and yesterday, I implemented the first few steps. I instantly moved from page 21 to page 15 (as well as actually had an appearance on page 1 of Google, via my Google Local Places, which hadn’t appeared earlier). Last night a quick search and I had moved to Page 14 and this morning, for the keywords Marketing Castle Rock, I was at page 13. see images below for clarification.

Again, if you read my book: Mikkel Pitzner’s Trade Secrets To Marketing Your Business Online, you will know, that a page 13 ranking isn’t gonna get you anywhere. In truth you really need to get to page 1 of Google.

However, we are moving forward and steadily improving our ranking. We will do more steps and see where it will take us. So far we have only done some very small types of steps and they are completely real as opposed to mischievous tricks just to fool Google and other search engines. I don’t go for the so called “Black Hat” tricks. Yes, they may help you out, and yes you may even get to page 1. But in due time, Google will find the loophole that you used and if your material isn’t of relevance nor helping people, then in all likelihood you will lose your ranking and possibly even for good. It’s really just a matter of time.

Therefore, only employ real efforts that makes real sense and provides real value.

Here, I’m aiming to get my ranking up for 3 simple words, Marketing Castle Rock. Marketing for that’s why we do and those are the kind of services we provide, and Castle Rock for that’s the town we are in and while we would like to help people from anywhere really, it just makes sense to help some of the businesses from the local community. In addition, go back and review the previous two posts for they reveal to you, why a local business may provide you with more business and more revenues than others. Again the two previous posts are:

and
http://www.amazingideasinc.com/quick-follow-up-on-marketing-castle-rock/

Now in closing out this post and going back to the title of When SEO Becomes A Game, well, then I cannot help but getting excited about seeing positive results come from the steps you implement in order to get the ranking and positioning better. It’s almost a game. You implement a few things. Then you wait a bit. Then you go and test to see if you got anywhere with your efforts. It’s actually kinda fun.

If you didn’t get anywhere, then you will have to revisit what you did or even better think about what would have a better outcome for you. Then you try that and see if you got it right this time around. And so on. And so on.

So onwards towards a superb ranking for the 3 chosen keywords: Marketing Castle Rock.

In the next upcoming post, I shall tell you a bit more about the utilization of “White Hat” tricks versus “Black Hat” tricks, so be sure to come back and revisit us.
