Update on my search engine ranking

After my post here, I became so disappointed or better to say scared and thought I should start a new research while that’s really the last thing I need with these many incomplete projects, mostly relied on my SEO strategies. Not that it was the first time it happened but it has never been this bad.

Well, there was barely better news for me than seeing my sites backing up on Google results not as good as they were but still reasonable enough to keep me hopeful.

The fact is that I almost forgot my own most important SEO advice which is PATIENCE and really freaked out to the point I was going to leave everything and take a break from all my online projects. Honestly life is tough enough for me not to need anything extra on the top of it, but I think that could have been my most stupid decision ever which I would regret forever and thanks God it didn’t happen. :)

Anyway, back to our subject, thanks to Tim Linden who pointed me to RankTrend I now have a central place to keep track of my sites’ search engine rankings and the efforts I make to improve it. I haven’t tried the service yet but looking at its concept, reading the service description, it seems pretty useful and handy. This way at least you can easily see if the strategies you follow, help or hurt and whether to continue or change it.

Alright, I think that’s enough as an update and I should get back to work…

    Hey, thanks for the comment. I have been very busy with other things rather than blogging so I am trying to discover what I want to do most on the internet. As for my blog, I don’t know where thats headed but I made a post, so you don’t see that “hello world”. Take care.

    Thanks Russell,
    As an advice, keep in mind that every time you erase your posts and change your blog you get the chance of 2 negative effects:
    1- Search engines will be mad on your site ’cause you feed them with 404 page not found errors.
    2- You lose your regular readers which is really hard to re-gain.

    Hope everything goes well this time.

    And as I’ve always said, “Be patient” :)

    I guess the whole effort is yielding results now, as you said this thing is all about patience.
