So who is responsible for my domain name’s traffic? What domain am I talking about? I am talking about curlers.org and yesterday I noticed a huge spike in traffic. It didn’t dawn on me at the time that this could be due to one of the search engines listing me high in the search results but that is exactly what happened.
Since I didn’t notice anything with Google or Yahoo I kind of just categorized this as a rare occurrence. Boy was I wrong! I decided to look further into the analytic data for curlers.org and noticed that Bing has decided to show me a little love. No forget that, they have decided to show me a LOT of love. This is the most impressive optimization yet.
I am ranked on the first page of Bing for the following terms:
best hair curler
curlers for hair
I am ranked on the second page of Bing for the following terms:
Now I am not sure how long the results will stick, but I was pleasantly surprised to see Bing stepping in to index me before both Google and Yahoo. I have to deem this a successful deployment of a static mini site. Although I don’t like the term mini site I will stick to using it for now, until I think of something different.
So what are the next steps? Good question and I am glad that I asked it! Since I am on the first page of Bing I need to offer some products on the site. I plan on integrating a few affiliate based products on the site via the Amazon affiliate program. I will also start to approach companies who either manufacture, distribute or sale curlers for direct advertising on the site. As long as I place high in the search engine results, this domain is worth its weight in GOLD! You are going to hear me utilize this term a great deal because I feel if you build a domain name out the right way you not only rank well but you CONVERT! Then your domain name becomes an automatic monkey making machine.
That’s what I am shooting for! For those of you who want the pure statistics my traffic jumped 1,900% according to Google Analytics. The stats don’t lie.
