I've been ranked!
Only a few weeks in at WA and a quick Google search of my website name (Art Completes Us) puts my site in the very first link of results! A search for one of my keywords, "how to choose art for your living room" and I'm on page 3. Not too shabby!
I'm far from the first page of results in every category, but I'm already seeing a few bits of traffic each day that came from Google, so I must be doing something right.
One thing that I did notice is that even though I recently set up Google Authorship between my website's Google+ page and my website, it wasn't showing my site's Google+ plus profile picture next to the article when I searched for it. Any clue why that might be? Is it just because I wrote the article before setting up Authorship?
Another weird thing I'm noticing is how big of a difference there is between the traffic that is being collected by my Jetpack plugin and the stats listed on my Google Analytics account. I've been getting about 30 visits a day according to Jetpack but I haven't seen a single visitor on Google Analytics since my first 6 visits during the week I set it up. I know that Analytics only tracks a certain kind of visitor, but is that all that could be happening?
Anyway, mostly just wanted to gloat a little bit - the last time I designed a website on my own (without WA), it took me almost a year for me to even be able to find my website name in a Google search. So it's the little things, I guess.
