SEO Myth: Rank 1st Page 1 Day
SEO Myth: you can rank on page 1 Google Results in 1 day
In a recent article answers that took place this was the question of the week: can you rank a website on 1st page google in 1 day?
A lot of debate went with this topic of course...and because I am not sure if I am allowed to share verbatim the other answers I can say the gist of them ranged from yes ....but with some parameters and definite nos.
I CAN speak for myself so here goes: I answered stating saying yes,with parameters...I'll explain those later... because in the last year I have been privy to getting a few local business owners to page 1 on Google for their business type. I cannot take full credit for this because the "hard part" was done by a videographer.
What we need to do see this through
What was needed to successfully do this and can it be done again?
Well, first off we used a Facebook Business page for the business. Then a video was shot for the business and subsequently uploaded to YouTube. Both were "tagged' with information regarding the business (meaning keywords, business name etc)
All of the information in the Facebook listing matched the information in YouTube video. Ironically this video was NOT put into it's own channel. It placed in a channel that the videographer uses to showcase his videos. His videos include messages from all kinds of businesses, him talking about landmarks in his area etc. He has a subscribers list of about 5000 people give or take and has built this channel over a few years.
The video was uploaded in the morning around 10:00 local time and by 3:00 in the afternoon he was on page 1 in the search results. Now what makes this story unique is that I didn't see the stats after the fact, was only told of it, But I did agree prior to this being carried out that it should be plausible to do.
Can you re-create these results? Do you believe that these results are even true? Do you believe that if they are true, that several factors in place made this possible. Stay tuned......
