On the Saturday morning, I just went to see if the blog had been indexed, and if so where it was ranking. Surprise, surprise, not only was the blog indexed it was top spot on Google. Yes it was No. 1 on Google in less than 18 hours. Now bear in mind that I have never had a No. 1 spot in Google prior to this. I am no Guru unfortunately
Now the question I guess you are asking is, "was I excited?" My answer: "was I heck!"
Warriors I hope I am not the only one who is just not getting it with all this 1st page of Google hype?
Can I just make one thing very clear. My four year old son can get to the 1st page of Google, and he doesn't even know how to switch on a PC.
The number of times I have seen sale page after sale page tout their product as if it is the best thing since sliced bread, simply because it got ranked No. 1 for certain keywords.
No, I don't have a problem with that in itself. However, when you dig deeper, you discover that for anyone with just an inkling of IM, it is easier to be on Page 1 than Not on Page 1.
Let's put it this way, for some keywords, you will have to work very hard to get a page off of Page 1.
So why do vendors carry on as if 1st Page of Google is the Holy Grail, especially when they know how easy it is to rank for the keywords they use on their sales page?
