SEO is Dead! Or so we are all lead to believe. Well it’s complete twaddle as Search Engine Optimisation is alive and well and doing it properly can have an amazing impact on your search engine rankings. As proof we have just moved a site we manage the SEO for, to number one on Google in just 68 days
Of course not every one has the SEO skills or knowledge to do this which is why George Fairbairn chatted to me about this back at the SWPP Convention in London where I was presenting some Masterclasses. He told me how we was building a new site for his portrait business and how he might need some help with his SEO. We agreed to speak again once his site was ready for launch.
So on the 16th of July we started providing our Managed SEO service for George’s brand new website at http://www.portraitsbygeorge.co.uk – at that point the site was sitting at position 77 for his chosen keyword.
By the next month we already had him on page 1 and he was soon sitting in the top 3.
Two days ago (22nd September) George’s site slipped quietly into number one position from a list of 77,400,000 potential results.
So from position 77 to number one on Google in just 68 days. And if you look closely you’ll notice that he still can improve his SEO by tidying up his site description. So who says SEO is dead? Well done George!
