I started by using Micro Niche Finder to flush out some keyword phrases in real estate. One phrase I came up with was “flat rate mls”. For those of you who know what the numbers mean from Micro Niche Finder this phrase has a 540 search…a 5060 exact phrase…and a 4 (green) SOC (strength of competition). According to the manual this should be a good phrase to use…
Next…I wrote an article and created a video and optimized both for that keyword phrase (or at least the best I know how).
I submitted the article to the following directories:
I submitted the video to
What I want to see is which method gets listed in Google fastest, which methods gets listed the highest, and which method holds it’s ranking the best.
I did this yesterday and here are my results so far…
Within a couple of hours my Revver video was on page 1 of Google (#9 spot) and my Veoh video was on page 2 (#18 spot)
My ezinearticle has not been approved yet so I have to wait to see how that does…
As for everything else I submitted (both video and article)…they are nowhere to be found…yet
Conclusion…from this one test…If you want to get listed fast, video seems to be the way to go and of the video sites I submitted to it was Revver and Veoh that have performed the best, NOT YouTube, Google, or Yahoo...I have also noticed this with other videos I have submitted. Of course, I’m talking about Google search results only.
As for which method and which directory has the best “staying power”…I guess time will tell.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
