A happy new year to all! – An update on my progress:
I have been hanging around the 62 – 69 positions on Google over the last week, today I ranked at No. 58 this morning and now i am ranking at No. 21 which is very cool, so far how to get higher in the SERPS is just based on traditional SEO methods and the right WordPress SEO plugins.
I triple checked and disabled that damn Google customisation personalisation search.
I am ranking No. 1 in Google for “coolest santa on the planet” and “coolest doctors on the planet”, so conquering not so competitive key terms with the right SEO will get you to number one in the SERPS pretty easily, i will follow through and write a page on this, traditional SEO methods.
Have been using the Rank Checker tool from SEO Book, I still think its a bit clunky, maybe its a Mac OS X thing, the scheduler seems to hang and the rankings are not what you see real time in the SERPS. Anyway now that I am 21 I should be able to test the SEO Moz free ranking tool which allows you 5 free hits a day (used my rations today!) but only shows the result if you rank in the top 50; well the free version anyway.
For the index i have 50 now in Google and 6 in Yahoo, Bing still doesn’t like me 🙁
