Page one of Google in Less Than an Hour!
Yes you read that right. I have a growing blog in the cat niche. (yet to monetise properly) and I add topical stories from time to time as well as information pages.
I receive Google alerts on cats and a headline drew my attention. A postman in Windsor had killed a catt with his trolley lid after it climbed into it las March. He was just jailed yesterday. i took the story, rewrote it and posted it to my blog. FB, tweet, reddit, stumbled,and pinged it.
Out of curiosity I wanted to see how long before Google indexed it so put the term "postman kills cat" into Rank Checker. Gobsmacked to see it was 1 on page one for Google.com after just 45 minutes. Did a UK search and it was no 3 Behind 2 national newspapers! And yes I was signed out of Google.
According to Jaaxy this kw gets 100 searches a month but with the story hitting the national press it may get a lot more in the next 24 hours. Just amazed how fast it got there.
My short piece is at http://youloveyourcat.com/postman-kills-cat-with-mail-trolley-lid-jailed-for-six-months/ if anyone wants a look.
Gives me a bit of a buzz for the weekend.
