SEO Case Study #5 – Fluctuating Rankings


It’s been 2 months since I last posted an update in this series. I should be making oodles of money by now right? Perhaps, but not quite. Progress has been kinda steady but rather slow.


First of all let me show you the graph for my money keyword. Currently this is showing as around 18k searches per month (22k when I first started so I hope it’s not a downward trend!)

Oops, Hosting Boo-Boo!

Some of you may have noticed that the blog has been offline for almost a week! Last weekend I got an email from Bluehost saying that my hosting plan was about to expire.

SEO Case Study #4 – A Number 1 Ranking On My New Site


At the end of the last post in the series I had registered a brand new domain, added a single page of content to it (a high quality page), added a handful of links and within a week it was ranking #3 for the brand name of the site.

For the last few months I have been tinkering around with SEO a bit, making lots of mistakes and also making some notes. I know the ‘case study’ style of posts that I used to write a few years ago were always popular so I thought I may as well post here now.

Though I won’t be revealing any keywords or domains as that just compromises the results. So, first a little background…

Happy Christmas Everybody :-)

This is just a short post to wish you all a Merry Christmas and to note that I most probably will not be posting over the next couple of weeks due to the holiday festivities. I’m sure you all have better things to do than read blog posts over this time anyway!

I have just added another tool to my most recent post on text tools and if I find more I shall continue to update them on that post.

A Handful Of Useful Online Text Tools

Today I have just a short post to list a few of the online text manipulation tools that I find myself using pretty much every day. These are simple tools to manipulate domains, spintax, keywords and so on.

I hope you find it useful.

#2 Launch to an established audience

This is part 2 of a series of posts about my experiences of running IMAutomator for over 5 years. You can view the entire series here.
