    Finally ranking for my main keyword


    Hi guys, Yeah its me. I guess I am kind of excited and had to just blab it about. I check some of my major rankings every couple days(3-4) and tonight I just checked and I am now ranking 790 for the keyword 'seo' without quotes. Yeah I know there is a big difference between that and page #1 but it is where all sites start and for a major phrase like that I am quite happy. Especially seeing as I have been neglecting it recently and I do need to work harder on it. BTW all my links are natural. I have never paid for a link, reciprocated or otherwise done any traditional link building. Every link pointing to my site is totally natural and was never asked for(except for a few directory submissions to the site which were done when it was a contest page).

    BTW if your wondering what the site is it is in my sig.

    I plan to someday rank top ten for seo. It may take me sometime yet as I plan to do it totally naturally.

    Okay I will stop bragging. I know to some of you it won't seem like much but it is a mile-stone to me.

    Congratulations!

    My only question is how you can keep yourself checking every 3-4 days. I get so wrapped up sometimes that I check 3-4 times per day.

    Think that the time you're keep checking this is lost time; better build one more back link or do one more tweaking on your site content or write half of a new page article and you're closer of your goal.

    Or go and drink a beer with your friends and you'll be happier.

    Now seriously, no need to check so often - once per week is more than enough; personally I check once per month.

    I don't have time to check all day long besides you have to wait a few days to see real changes anyways.

    Googlerankings.com searches through the first 1000 results with a API. A google API is fairly easy to get. And once I figure out where I am I do usually check manually to see the live results as it usually is different.

    Well were in the same boat then... - I never have time to write and you lack time to read. I am working on closing out some of my current projects so I can work harder at my main sites.

    I am actually surprised reading some of the posts from years back that some of these guys never started a seo site. Some of them are very knowledgeable and could have ranked for seo by now. I don't see myself as more educated than anyone else. I am just sharing and passing on what I have found out so that it may be of use to other webmasters.
