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

How many work from home business opportunities have you seen that show those big six figure possibilities? It sucks us in! We see the big bucks, the $1,000,000 we could make in only 90 days, and our minds are turned. But, will the desire for the big bucks make you rich in a work from home business opportunity?
Everyday people seek better lives. We all want more, and we want better. Often we will think that having a million bucks will make everything possible. I have seen many countless people who hold that view. They feel that having the money will make them rich, and that it will make life better, but it doesn't. Here is why.
A look at the lottery winners will show that many of them soon lose the money. As fast as it comes in it goes out, and they are back to poor. This is same in a home business opportunity. You see the opportunity and the potential and dive right in. Money doesn't give much enthusiasm, and the lack of it in the beginning makes most people leave.
However, this is not the worst part of the warning. The warning is what happens before the person leaves. Most people who go for the 'get rich quick' view will jump into a business opportunity for the money. Next they find that work is involved. After all to make a million bucks in the business is going to take years of effort. You have to put in the time.
Soon seeing that the work from home business opportunity does not interest us, we leave to find something else that can promise riches. Most people will never try again after the first time, and some become chronic - join 'get rich quick' schemes. There is a fundamental difference. Those work from home business opportunities that advertise as promising to make you rich without any effort is a lie. You need to act constantly to achieve that level of success.
The worst problem is when it comes to the marketing. With the marketing the eyes see millions, and this comes out to the prospects. It is like a car salesman who is looking more at the money rather than serving. Here is a key.
Service is the only way to make money in a home business opportunity. Unfortunately many people who join a work from home business opportunity will only put in minimal effort. They will be good starters but bad finishers. Remember these points, as it will cut out a lot of failure, and bring more success.
Success comes from serving people. A home business also needs more time and attention than a day job. It is funny considering that most people will not be professional with a work from home business opportunity that only needed an investment of a couple of hundred dollars.
If you browse around enough online it appears that everyplace you click, you're overwhelmed with promotional material advising how to make more money than you do right now. The majority of these ads state that you'll make more money for performing tasks that are effortless and non-eventful. What most advocates of home business scams aren't willing to tell you is that it's going to require working for many hours before you earn a single dime.
Scams are essentially gimmicks to absolve you of money or belongings, by deceit. Simply put, you are forking over money for something that:
1. Is nonexistent 2. Does not function 3. Is of exceedingly low quality and/or value 4. Immensely overstates the performance and claims of the products/services 5. Never belonged to the vendor and there's no authorization to sell it 6. Often carry hidden costs with them
The most essential thing you can do to steer clear from being scammed while looking for a home based business opportunity is to execute your calculated research patiently. Several home business scams are constructed to influence you to sign up right away while the questions you need to be asking are not evident to you. A number of online seekers who purchase items on the internet oftentimes rely on their emotional responses instead of specifically examining the product or opportunity with their practical judgment.
Some upfront logical items to complete or ponder before sending money: Ask for all of the initial investments necessary to get involved in the program; to clarify exactly what you get in return for your money. You should request or have access to comprehensive disclosure about the company, the products and the opportunity. The communication with the company offering the home business opportunity should be easy and not forced or hurried. Perform traditional market investigation to find out if the opportunity will appeal to customers. A well-established and superior home business opportunity will actually answer these inquiries for you.
It's vital to not get carried away with the hype and promises that you can earn your money quick and easy, but not every home business opportunity is a scam. If a person learns the proven successful way to employ their website online they can look forward to creating a consistent stream of leveraged income online. It may require months or even years of persistent marketing to see some money; however, there is tangible money to be created with an internet home based business.
Most people who complete their due diligence of research and investigating can ensure that they're not missing an extraordinary opportunity to develop an internet business that has real meaning to their financial futures.
If you're trying to find the best rated home based business opportunity, you may be experiencing some frustration. Today, there are so many different home based business opportunities to choose from, that finding the right one for you can seem like a never ending search. In this brief article, I'm going to reveal some important things to look for as you're evaluating different work from home businesses. Hopefully by the time you've finished reading this, you'll feel more more confident choosing a work from home program.
The first thing that the best rated home based business opportunities have is a proven blueprint for success. Having a system that new members can immediately begin using to build their businesses is vital. Also, is the system easily duplicated? Can the average individual make money by “plugging in” and following the steps? If so, you may have a winner.
Another thing that is important in home based businesses is mentorship. Do you have access to mentors who have already experienced success? If not, continue with your search. Having the guidance and advice of someone who is already successful in the business you're building is priceless, and can save you a lot of time and money.
Lastly, does the business have a good product? Many network marketing companies have products that are mediocre at best, but cost more than their competitors. Make sure that the product the business is built around is solid and of high quality.
Hopefully, this short article has given you some tips on how to choose the best rated home based business opportunity. Working from home is an amazing experience and one that I would highly recommend to anyone, but it's important that you choose the right business opportunity. Not all work from home businesses are created equal, so make your decision wisely!
If your home based business income isn't where you want it to be, there are some simple things that you can begin doing right now to make more money. In this brief article, I'm going to reveal some things that have greatly increased the amount of money I earn from my home based business. Hopefully by the time you're finished reading this, you'll have some ideas that you can apply to your business.
One thing that really gave my home based business income a boost was creating a dedicated space in my house for business-only activities. Instead of working on the couch with the TV on, I began spending time working from my home office area and immediately found that I was more motivated and better organized.
Another thing that I did was cut off my cable television. For me, TV was a tremendous distraction during the day and it was always tempting to flip it on. So I made the decision to eliminate it completely.
Last but not least, buy a whiteboard and some dry erase markers. I have a huge whiteboard in my home office where I write down ideas, daily stuff that needs to be done, etc. This has really helped in the organization department and also with brainstorming. Highly recommended.
Hopefully this short article has given you some ideas that you can immediately begin using to generate more home based business income. Making money from home is the best thing that has ever happened to me, but it isn't always easy. Setting some “rules” and working on your organization will go a long way in helping you make more money.
