You guys remember the video SEO experiment right?
If you don’t then read this blog post: To the Top of Google in 72 Hours: An Experiment
Firstly, the results for the keyword ‘Prescott Web Design’ were incredible. However, it took much longer than 72 hours to rank consistently on the number 1 spot in Google. It took about 3 weeks. But now it has been merily sitting at the top ever since. I am going to level with you though: I haven’t received any business because of it. The reason for that is simple: it only gets about 46 monthly searches, which means that only about 15 people have watched it, because of typing in that keyword. My website was also down for a long period of time because of the hacking so I am not surprised.
The next keyword: ‘Phoenix web design’
Next on my list is Phoenix web design, which I am very excited about, because it gets more than 1,000 searches per month. As you can imagine though, it is a lot more difficult, and this time I will be doing it on a limited budget to see if it’ll work. The video is similar to that of Prescott web design. See below:
Video SEO Strategy
Last time I blasted Prescott web design with views, comments, likes and favorites. I also built thousands of links to it. This cost me about $700. This time I want to do something that is slower and cheaper.
- Build links over a longer period of time.
- Add views, comments, and favorites day by day for 40 days.
- Embed it in a blog post (already done)
My fear is that it is going to take a very long time for this video to reach the top. I just have to monitor it within YouTube search first. If it is gradually moving up the rankings there, then it will only be a matter of time before it does so in Google. It may be that I need to give it a big push in a couple of months time.
Right now the only video showing up for Phoenix web design is this one (see below) and it is all the way on page 10!
I sure hope I displace these guys pretty quickly, because page 10 is awful. I will keep you posted on my progress. Hopefully I can keep the costs down, but the rankings for this video up.
