I've been working rather slowly on my website and still only have six posts on there. But today, I thought I would check Google for just a couple of my keyword phrases. Imagine my surprise finding my site on the top of page 6, and for another, in the middle of page 7.
To you seasoned marketers, I know that's nothing. I don't even have any affiliate links on my site yet anyway and I never submitted a sitemap.
I've got a lot of work to do yet I know, but when one starts to see results it's very encouraging.
