Distraught . Confused . Overjoyed . Confused
As some of you know I have been working my butt off on my golf training aid website. I've worked hard on SEO. Added content. Lengthened posts to make them more user friendly. Added a few inbound links (work in process). And yet I have been lost in the backpages of Google search. No visibility = No traffic = No conversions. So I have been distraught and confused.
Recently I committed to work two paths: 1.) add more content, and 2.) try to figure out social media. So I am working both fronts. As an example I opened up a Google+ account and got a few followers.
This morning I went and checked my page rankings in Jaaxy and I still don't exist for my keywords. On a whim I typed in my main keywords into Google and had a joyful surprise. My Google+ account profile was the third entry on page 1. So, I am surprised and elated!
Then again I am confused. It just seems a little bizarre that a Google+ profile with minimum content and minimum followers is ranking on my keywords whereas my actual website is nonexistent!
Take the wins where you can get them!
