I decided to write a blog about a skin care product I'm using. I used Wordpress.
I didn't use any plug-ins or changed anything. In fact, I just blogged during my breaks at work using my iphone.
This week, I've discovered my non-profit blog rated #1 for a two word search on Google. All it contains is thorough honest to goodness info - no videos, audios, no fancy backgrounds or images, no backlinks, no plug-ins. I spent absolutely zero money on it. I just basically typed what I knew on Wordpress.
I am an IM newbie and just started doing this to get my feet wet and educate myself. No profit-making blogs yet but I am pleased to see I actually have a chance at making a blog #1.
I haven't checked my stats yet. I just logged in to my friend's computer and typed in two words related to my blog into Google. It's not very obscure words either.
So what's my point? I was so caught up before on what I can do to accelerate profits for myself that I didn't focus on what I can offer to the public. I have another blog that I have spent money on but is not anywhere near the first ten pages of Google that I've worked so hard for. And now I have this tiny blog that I just ranted on for less than 1 hour of work rated #1.
People will ignore all the hype and flashing lights if they can't find anything helpful on your site. Just something I discovered that I wanted to share with you.
PS: I know many of you will be asking me for the name of my successful blog.
I won't reveal that yet. I'll wait a few more weeks and see how long it will stay #1 and then I'll reveal it.
