Corporate website design experiment: how to use a blog to increase your ranking in the search engines.
Everybody knows that a better result in the search engines = more traffic = more sales, right? So here’s an experiment to see just how easy (or difficult) it is to claw your way up the search results using the power of your blog. I’ve carefully written this post to include the key phrase “corporate website design” in several prominent places and you’ll notice that in some places I’ve spelled the phrase corporate website design (three words) and in others corporate web site design (four words). This is because Google will differentiate between a search for “website” and “web site” and treat them as two different searches bringing up different sets of results.
Now, I have to be honest, I’m not sure how well this will work on a brand new blog with no one linking to it yet but I’ll keep an eye on the results over the coming weeks and let you know what happens.
At the time of writing (May 2008) this blog did not appear anywhere in the top 50 results when searching Google for “corporate website design” or “corporate web site design”. Take it away search engine spiders….
