SEO Blogging Experiment
I want to make sure that small business owners in my local marketplace can find me if and when they are looking for a local small business website designer or wordpress website developer.
So, I wrote a simple blog post and published it with a keyword optimized title:
Warrenton VA Website Design
I provided a brief overview of my website design and development services, and added links to my small business website design portfolio.
I published the blog post on March 20, 2011 – and within 24 hours I was showing up for the keyword phrase I wanted, in the number 5 position just beneath other long-established local website design firms.
