Practical SEO Tips For Investors! First! Why is this SEO so important? Well before my site was ranking 1 on the Goog… I spent about 2K on a list and another 5K a month on marketing to that list. And keep in mind… when marketing for a list, you are the one begging for their attention. Now.. with my site raging the G.. this is what I see…
I get about a lead a day. And this is slowly increasing to 2 leads a day! And these leads are from people that actually are looking for me for attention! So pay attention!
Those of you that follow my house flipping blog, yeah all 1 of you… will know why I have been gone for a while. In case you are not that single groupie that stalk me… read about it here: “My contractor took the money and ran“. But I will not dwell on this. Let’s talk about Practical SEO Tips For Investors!
Well, they were gone also. It was just too much bad shit to deal with and I just had to drop everything and focus on that house flip.
Well now, that finally, things are falling back on track.. slowly, I decided to get back onto the SEO wagon and be a pain in my competitor’s ass again. I was worried to see what I would find. Where my site would be ranking that I had not touched it… in months.
Well, I was shocked to see my site had significantly increased in ranking. However, my precious site links were still not there.
Actually, I have been approached by many investors asking me for help on their SEO. I have decided to help Local cash buyers in Massachusetts. Let’s see if we can improve his ranks and conversion rate. Stay tuned!
How To Get Mini-Site Links
So I decided to grab google by the balls and was determined to get them back. So.. I did a quick search and learned all there was to learn about the site links… keep in mind there is no google manual. All there is are nerds speculating what google may probably find important to rank and get your links.
Well… I read a few articles and decided to clean up my site based on what I have learned.. and believe it or not.. after I “fetched and rendered as google”.. (i.e. hit the crawl button), my links magically came back instantly!!! After 3 months of suddenly disappearing.
Don’t believe me? Good. Google “we buy houses In Connecticut”. yes… DO IT damn it. Want to learn how? Then google it.
Then click on the “how it works” link!
The funny thing is that now the links appear when I even search for (some) specific cities like ” We Buy Houses In Hartford CT“. Even funnier, I don’t even rank first for this keyword, still, my links come up.
So I think it is safe to say I know exactly how to get them… on MY SITE. Yes “on my site”. I do not think there is this magic formula that will award you the links if you just do it. It depends on your domain name as well… I am sure of it.
Keywords In Your Domain Name MATTER!!
Remember when everyone said… “domain name is not important anymore… it is nice to have but not important”? BULL POOP!!! Here is why. Not sure if I had mentioned this before or not… but.. take a word that does not exist.. like “Nike” before they became famous.
It was just a name much like “pooplestroodle”. Your search for that and nothing will come up. Well, I HOPE nothing will come up… But google “Nike ” now… (no don’t actually do this)… You will see the site in the search along with the site links in the SERPs!!
Why? because when you type in Nike, you are ACTUALLY looking for the company Nike. So google assumes you were looking for Nike. The brand. So google will display the company and its branded name, and thus the site links.
Now imagine your company (or website name is like.. umm.. let’s see….) “we buy houses in Connecticut”. Which is the highest bidder keyword in this business right? Well.. when google “knows of you”.. they will think, anyone that types in that keyword, is actually LOOKING FOR the company/website: “WeBuyHousesInConnecticut.com”.
So Google thinks… Ohh they are looking for Jerryll’s awesomeostssests site, isn’t he just sexy I want to eat him up!… so they will display my name, and the sitelinks. So what have we learned? YOU WANT a keyword in the domain name. Unlucky for you all I have started claiming all the magic keywords like we buy houses in Connecticut, and sellmyhouseinconnecticut.com, webyhousesforcash.com, etc. etc.
Then… when I have more time I will SEO the crap out of all these sites as well. What happens then? I am now competing against myself… not against my nasty competitors anymore.. so then what happens?
Well.. “shit those WeBuyHousesInConnectuct.com guys have the first place and I (sellMyHouseInConnecticut.com) am 3rd place. I will try to knock WBHIC over so I can claim first…
So if I (sellMyHouseInConnecticut.com) manage to throw them (WeBuyHousesInConnectuct.com) over, I claim number one, and they roll down to second! Muuhaha… so… whomever actually wins… it is one of MY sites that will take the top 4 places.. kicking everyone else off of the first page. Am I an asshole or what!?
I have honestly not yet seen another investor site with sitelinks. Am I saying there are none? Of course not. I just have not seen any. And I have looked. So it is quite impressive to have them. Even funnier, my compies (competitors) boast on their site that they have been in business for 15+ years. And I beat their asses in like 4 months of doing my own SEO! Haaa. Cry me a river bitch!
SEO Through Blog Sites.
Guess what My munchkins. When I left the SEO world a few months back as described above, both my blogs, this one and my “ThatFlippinHouse.com” had a DA and Pa of a measly 1!
Go check your Moz bar now on my sites… Yup, My house flipping blog now has a Pa of 27!! and a DA of 19!! Also, this blog has a pretty significant Moz score now.
You know what this means right? I will backlink every page on my websites and stack the links exponentially by interlinking all my other sites all intertwined like a filthy nasty backlink frenzy orgy!
So what does this mean for you… GET YOUR OWN DAMN BLOG GOING!!! so that we can exchange backlinks and guest posting. Yes, I will give actual contributing members of my blogs “Follow” backlinks.
Work together, people!! Share my blog posts on facebook, twitter, etc. etc. I will do the same for you, and I will help you rank, but you have to give as well. Not just take it! You freeloaders!
