Christmas is always a fun time. Waking up early and running to the tree to see what goodies left you is always a fan favorite. Just imagine my happiness when I just happen to check my e-mail Christmas morning and received an alert e-mail from SERPfox that said my primary keyword ‘Baltimore Car Insurance’ had jumped from 8-6 all the way up to #3. To make things even more exciting the #3 position is above the local results and my organic listing is just about to break the top ‘fold’. Take a look for yourself.
With this number three ranking I started to notice a trickle of traffic to the site. I even generated the first few leads to the site as well. This website is officially earning money! When I previously wrote about determining my geography and keyword targets I said that I wouldn’t expect to earn a penny until I achieved a top three ranking. It looks like I was right. The screen shot below (click for larger / clearer image) shows my earning over the last week. This sites earnings should only increase as I climb into the number one position.
Continuing The Climb To Number 1.
I’ve made a lot of progress with www.baltimorecarinsurance.org in the past few months. I truly expect to be at number one by the beginning of February. How will I do this? I’ve already built a handful of links through expired domains, diversified my anchor text and referral link source by sending a very small blast of links from blackhatlinks.com and of course a few links from this domain. To push this site over the hump and take over that number one spot i’m going to work on building up the sites authority some more. I’m not focused on more anchor text links, simply further diversifying the anchor text and increasing authority. My strategy which i’ll go into further detail in an upcoming post is to do some tiered link building. There will be a heavy focus on web2.0 and article directory properties. This is very similar to THEHOTH package i’ve talked about in the past. I am however experimenting with doing all the work on my own with the help of outsourcing a few tasks and using a couple of tools. If this works as well as THEHOTH if not better i’ll share you guys the full strategy.
Hope everything enjoyed their Christmas and Happy New Years to everyone as well. Here’s to another happy, healthy and profitable year!
