Awesome! Any idea what did it? I've been struggling with hitting page one with my keywords. Congratulations on hitting the front page!

Position 0. I like that. Spoken like a programmer.

Keywords and patience. Lots and lots of patience.

Position 0 is when Google displays a chunk of your content (a snippet) before they display the name of your page and site. People can then read a bit of your site's content without having to click anything. It's generally considered the highest rank you can get. Hence, position 0. Google calls it a "featured snippet".

Thank you for explaining position 0. I had never heard of this before, but that makes perfect sense. Learning so much!

One thing I thought I would mention:

It might seem like a good idea to redo some of your content to accommodate new keywords that you hope will get your ranking up. I used to do this.

This turned out to be a big waste of time. A better idea is to leave older content alone and put new keywords you've discovered into new content. I now never rewrite older content unless I've made some sort of mistake.

Just try to crank out new content and let the Google spiders do their thing.

I get stuck a lot trying to come up with ideas for new content. But if I think I've come up with something that only relates remotely to my niche, I'll write it up. I believe that visitors will be willing to re visit your site if you jump out of the box once in a while.
