My Results from Keyword Placement in Title Tag Case Study for SEO consulting

05 Sep
September 5, 2007

Its been close to 2 months since I made my title tag change on www.joe-whyte.com. This case study was just for fun and looks like we have found some interesting results which a lot of us are probably not suprised about however this adds more “proof in the pudding” if you will and clears up misconceptions in a field full of opinions in my mind.

I have been checking for the past 2 months and it looks like the SERPS have settled to at least what is going to be a normal positioning for my targeted keyword term which was “SEO Consulting”. I have landed on page 2 at the bottom. Over the last few months I have seen myself as high as number 11 on the second page and as low as the bottom of page 3 however I have not seen me go as far as the 4th page which is a pretty amazing testiment to the power of changing your title tag for your keywords and good ground work for a powerful argument against the power of keywords regarding their proximety to the opening title tag.

I can  see a few things that concern me. One being the fact that there is no description tag so “seo consulting” is being pulled from the page. I think I need to go ad that term somewhere on my page, maybe in an H tag ;-) .

      Ranking on Google has never been more difficult. There are several ways to counter spamdexing. Even though spammers are trying to increase their ranking, Google is always fighting against them.

      I have been going alt and title text mad latelty (on links not page title).
      I have also been mixing in PPP (Pay per post) on some splogs..etc which has worked quite well, although must be mixed in with some good PR strength aswell.

      I think to rank well for terms there is alot to be taken into consideration and i am also a keen correct user of all the heading (h1, h2, h3..etc) tags.
