Want to know a quick little "Ranking Trick"?
You've set up your website with Google right?
1) Go to Google
2) Type in your DOMAIN NAME
3) Hit SEARCH.
Let me guess... you came up number 1? Or REAL CLOSE to it?
(If you didn't, your Google Webmaster Tools set up may not be dialed in just right yet...)
That's how cool it looks when you start ranking!
That's how it looks when somebody already knows your website name and looks for you...
BUT HOW ARE THEY GOING TO KNOW IT'S NAME ALREADY TO TYPE IT IN? They won't.
HOW DOES THIS TURN INTO TRAFFIC? It doesn't... Unless you happen to have a keyword that is going to bring you thousands of visitors a day from just happening to type in your domain name. SEO is good but... there's a LOT more steps to take after you just set up the site.
Even though ranking for your own Domain Name is kind of cute and entertaining - and with the right keywords is a start - don't let that disappoint you if you don't get traffic yet!
What you have right now is... "PSEUDO-RANKING" HAHA!
It is going to get way better when you create actual traffic using SEO / Social Media / etc to bring people to you!
Here's to us all getting those training wheels off and runnin' with the big dogs!
