I can’t continue to add the keyword “SEO Bounce Rate” to the title or Google will be getting pissed at me. 🙂 Anyway, I’ve been monitoring results for that keyword phrase since my last post on March 10, and here’s the funny thing:
Results have been changing — up a couple of spots, down a couple of spots, but the original article that the video was based on was NOWHERE to be found, so I stopped looking for it. Actually, I haven’t checked things over the past week or so, but today…
Here’s what I saw in a Chrome “Incognito Mode” window:
(If you’re not familiar with the Chrome Incognito Window, you get to it from the Tools menu. Erase your Google cookies too, just to be sure, and then, the browser is like brand new. No personal results or local results will show up for you, and allows you to see where things stand for keywords that you type in without any of the bias.)
Notice that the three posts about the test and the original article are now at positions 1, 2, 3, and 4 on page 1 of Google. We even kicked Wikipedia down to #5. Just thought that if you’ve been following the progress of this test, you would be interested to see these results. Let’s see how long things stick.
The methodology again is to find a keyword that you’re ranking highly for, to create a video about it, post the video to YouTube, and then to your blog. Use the same keyword in the title and description of your video post, and then, sit back and watch the results. Of course you wouldn’t be reporting results as I have in these posts, but you may have one original post and a video post that do very well for that keyword.
Why am I telling you about this?
Because you read my stuff, and I appreciate you. I hope you can use this information in a way that will help you to get more traffic and make more sales.
It will be interesting to see what happens after the “over-optimization” algo is applied, too, if it hasn’t been already. I’m guessing that a couple of these listings will drop or go away completely, though. Keep you posted.
