This week China Business Success Stories achieved an important milestone in its effort to become one of the top China Business web sites out there. In what should qualify as an official world speed record, we accomplished one of our short term objectives: reaching the top ten spot in Google, searching for China Business. Big deal? Huge! It means we beat around 700 to 800 million others, leaving but a few to outperform us on this particular search. Forget top 1%. Forget being ranked in the first 1% of the first 1% searching for China Business. If I'm not mistaken, we are now in the first 1%, of the first 1%, of the first 1%, of the first 1%, and then some. Effectively leaving more than 99,999999% other China Business sites behind us!
Is it a world record? Well if anything, it goes to prove – make sure to discuss this with your online marketer – that within 8 months you can establish amazing results, if you are willing to spend the time and effort (in our case 1FTE of work at least). And it doesn't have to costs half a million dollars, if the web site:
- is on topic with the desired keywords
- actually has to offer benefits to its audience
- is well designed as far as usability is concerned
- content has more than one contributor and offers ways to respond
- is accessible to / optimized for search engine spiders
- gets noticed by some 2.0-type of web sites out there (as long as it is still 2007 when you read this)
China Business SEO / SEM stats
Depending on which country you are from (and in what language your OS (Operating System / Windows) is!), you can now find us on: the number Nr. 4 spot on the first Page in Google if you're looking for China Business related sites in Holland/ Dutch language. That is to say, on at least 3 days of the week. Google uses different databases and servers, so half the time you would need to look on the second page of Google's results. As far as I could gather, in the US we are on the third page, in India same thing, etc. Where exactly? Please tell me.
Look for China Business on any search engine of your choice, and let me know where we stand?
Make sure to click our 'organic result' as well, because that is one of many factors Google uses to determine whether our China Business world speed record was good judgment. I think it is. I hope you agree!
PS Any tips, suggestions or comments on how to improve our China Business ranking (or on any given keyword), are highly appreciated. For instance: what on earth do we have to do to get PageRank 7 – in world speed record time obviously – on Google? Is it a matter of waiting, or keep trying?
