Today marks exactly 2 weeks at #1 for SEO Freelancer. (Google.co.uk)
Aside from the fact I enjoy bragging to my friends about this achievement, it does bring a nice steady flow of leads into the site, without any active advertising or reach out, which is always nice.
This was an active keyword I chased for around 4 months. At the same time I was also able to rank for some other semi-decent keywords, such as: private seo consultant #1, freelance seo / freelance seo consultant (page 1). And now it’s achieved and secured I’m looking for a new keyword to target.
As I like a challenges, I’m going to be trying to rank #1 for “seo consultant” in 90 days. Although this is not the most competitive keyword by any stretch, to go from nowhere to the #1 seo consultant in the UK inside 1 year would be an awesome achievement for me and as I’m competitive I think making it a challenge to myself and my entire readership of SEO Oasis (all 7 of you) motivates me further.
Current results are below:
As you can see I’ve bounced around page 2 for around 2 weeks, currently sitting at #16.
Sidenote: Just in case your feeling particularly generous, the site is: https://ghostmarketing.co.uk (not seo oasis) feel free to link ;).
Over the next 90 days I will be writing posts titled “the quest” here – to keep everyone (and myself) updated on progress and exactly what I have done to achieve these rankings. Give me a follow on twitter to stay updated. I’m also actively looking to write guest posts anywhere and everywhere now too, so contact me if you need anything technical or want an awesome post!
