A NEW SEO EXPERIMENT - The Coolest Guy on The Planet - By Jason Smith
I'm going to try an experiment with some "White Hat" SEO techniques. I've studied some of the best out there, white hats and black hats. I've learned a lot (and am still learning) from all of them.
I remember reading about this "The Coolest Guy on The Planet" contest that was going on a few years back, and honestly kinda just forgot about it. I was out updating some of my sites & blogs and thought... hummmm... Let me try a little experiment and see if I can bump myself up to #1 or #2 on Google.
Now don't get me wrong here I don't have a big head, and I'm not one to think, "Oh yeah Jason Smith is the Coolest Guy on The Planet"
No... This is just an experiment and a test to see how well this will work.
As of May 18th 2010, here's what I can see on Google for the term Coolest Guy on the Planet.
Well there's a guy at #1 with the initials JL and actually has the website "coolest guy on the planet (dot) org."
And there's another guy at #2, (M i k e F i l s i m e) we'll call him MF. He owns the site "the coolest guy on the planet (dot) com."
Well those two might be hard to knock off since they own the actual site name of the title we're using here. (or close to it) But we'll just have to see how this works.
This blog is a case study in progress. You see, one of the great top SEO genius I've learned from is a guy named B r a d F a l l o n. (Reason for spaces below.)
I will refer to him as BF from now on.
BF has a site for wedding favors that is ranked #1 for Google.com , Yahoo, and MSN for the terms wedding favors and wedding gifts. BF also has a course called stomping the search engines. It talks about the importance of getting quality links back to your site to increase your page rank and overall rank position.
Now, I Jason Smith, don't claim to know as much as BF or some of these other greats in the SEO field. But like I said I have learned a lot from them.
As of May 18th 2010, BF is #3 & #4 for the search term:
"The coolest guy on the planet" - Go to Google.com and do a search on that phrase.
I have seen many people slide from the 5-10 positions on Google for that search phrase.
I was looking over MF's article on this same kind of experiment and here's something cool I read.
"You see, BF and MF met in Las Vegas. And we were at a casino playing Blackjack. And I heard him say to a lady dealer, I am "the coolest guy on the planet." And then he said, no really, type it in Google, and you will see bf.com I thought he was joking. But then later I saw he was not. Then I found that there is a club of SEO guru's all fighting for that #1 position for "the coolest guy on the planet." But no one could knock him off. So I told him I was going to get the domain names and we both ran up to our rooms and I went to GoDaddy and beat him and then got an alternative domain as well. Man was he mad. But I still had to do stuff with it."
So now I wanted to try this out. I've been watching and studying BF, MF & many others and want to give this a try and see if I can pop up to #1 with Jason Smith being The Coolest Guy on The Planet. I don't have the domain names, but like I said this is just an experiment to see if I can get to #1 on Google.
Now, as like MF stated on his site I am using the same reasoning. The reason I am using MF, JL, & BF and not their real names is that I am competing with them in this race to the top spot and I do not want to help out their rankings.
But I am using the term often in this article i.e. Jason Smith is The coolest guy on the planet, or The coolest guy on the planet is Jason Smith so that the keywords are added through out the article next to my name.
O.K. so now, to see if this blog really works and the back-links as well. I am going to post this article on my site and see if I can get links back to it by also posting it to article submission services.
I'll be checking back now and then and see if I've gone from Jason Smith The coolest guy on the planet being ranked at... oh wait, NOT even being ranked on Google, to being ranked #1 or even #2 for The coolest guy on the planet really is Jason Smith.
I hope to see that this does work to improve the ranking. Then I will write another article about the results. But at least as you read this you can track it for yourself to see how well the articles have helped make Jason Smith The Coolest Guy on The Planet.
I'm not there yet, but here might be some proof!
Proof that Jason Smith is The Coolest Guy On The Planet
I also added a few links from Twitter, FaceBook, & MySpace. It was fun to try this out and I can't wait to see the results.
Is Jason Smith going to be The Coolest Guy On The Planet ?
Why ask this?
Because it's clear that M i k e F i l s a i m e & B r a d F a l l o n are currently The Coolest Guy (s) on the planet,
And since M i k e said himself that he is not an SEO Expert like B r a d, it would seem that just asking the question is interesting. Because I'm not an SEO expert, but I have picked up a few things here and there from B r a d and many others.
Where would we be on this planet if not trying to be the coolest guy. A n d y J e n k i n s & B r a d C a l l e n of the famed StomperNet would agree I am sure.
Some more stuff for those of you still actually reading this, I know it's just an experiment, so it's not like I'm expecting people to be reading this... Or still reading this far anyway. But if you are that's very cool and I wish I could find something for you, or give to you. Maybe if you are still reading this far and you want to leave a comment (not just spam) something useful or of meaning, that would be cool, and then I could get in touch with you and somehow thank you for helping me get to be the coolest guy on the planet.
And Thanks again for reading, I hope I have or can find a way to help you out as well. Maybe you want to be ranked as the coolest girl on the planet
